Oba Martins has talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, and it looks like heâ€™s looking forward to scoring some goals for Newcastle before the end of the season.
Oba Martins – 7 goals for Newcastle this season
Martins told The Chronicle:
“It has worked very well in the last couple of games. These tactics suit me and any player who wants to attack.â€â€œMark and Michael have scored in recent games, so it will probably be my turn against Tottenham! I’m hoping to score again soon.â€
â€œThe important thing is hard work and trying to get three points first. That’s what we will do against Spurs. The most important thing is just to finish on a high.â€
â€œIt’s been disappointing, but we have still got seven games left to play for. It would be great to keep our run going against Tottenham. We know it won’t be easy as they are a good team.”
â€œIf we carry on playing like we did against Fulham I think the season will have a happy end. We have to stay positive, in our thinking and the way we play our football.â€
With Sunderland having won their last two games, they are now one point above Newcastle in the league, and the Magpies will need a win to get above Sunderland since they have a worse goal difference then Sunderland.
But Bolton’s loss yesterday means that Newcastle are still 6 points clear of the drop zone, and a win today would do wonders to alleviate our relegation worries and lift the spirits of the Newcastle supporters.
Hopefully, Oba can help there with a goal or two, but it promises to be a good game between two attacking sides.
