Sam Allardyce was delighted with his teamâ€™s good form against Tottenham last night, especially in the second half.
This is the best start at home Newcastle have made in 10 seasons but itâ€™s not the same story on the road.
Sam now wants to fix that and thereâ€™s no better place to start than at Reading on Saturday.
Claudio Cacapa – man of the match and dominant in Magpies defense against Spurs
After the game against Spurs Sam said:
“We’ve had our best home start in over ten years and we’ve now scored three times in three home games on the trot.â€
“Our home record is getting us where we want to go – now we’ve got to make sure that next week at Reading we don’t waste all the hard work.â€
“The home record has to continue into the away record and we have to make sure that we come away from Reading with something.”
So itâ€™s going to be an interesting game at reading on Saturday where a win will give Newcastle 20 points from their first 10 games, not a bad start at all to the season. But we still need to be a lot stronger in defense. The defense played well again tonight but what happened for the goal? It came out of nothing which is never a good sign.
Weâ€™d go for a 1-0 win on Saturday since itâ€™s now 6 games without a clean sheet and only 3 clean sheets in our first 11 games. That has to be the goal for Saturday â€“ 3 points and a clean sheet – and we’ll be riding high.
