Kevin Keegan is still the pragmatist, and doesnâ€™t believe Newcastle are out of relegation trouble yet, but he wants a strong finish to the season, so players and staff can’t wait to get back for next season.
Kevin Keegan – still in relegation fight
Kevin is not getting carried away too much, and knows that tomorrowâ€™s game with Reading will not be easy although we think it is a winnable game for the lads.
Kevin talked today:
â€œWeâ€™re by no means home and hosed,â€ â€œBut the way things worked out last weekend has given us some breathing space.â€
â€œWe have enjoyed the week but I donâ€™t want the players thinking â€˜Thatâ€™s itâ€™ now. I want them to kick on and finish the season on a high, so everyone thinks â€˜I canâ€™t wait to get back next season to see what happensâ€™. â€œ
â€œThatâ€™s not just the players, but the staff and supporters as well.â€
Reading manager Steve Coppell believes his side have nothing to fear from Keeganâ€™s rejuvenated team, and as usual he will have his side well prepared:
â€œI believe the previous gameâ€™s form doesnâ€™t carry through. From our point of view weâ€™re on a good run so thereâ€™s nothing to be frightened of.â€
We’re looking forward to a good attacking game from the lads, and we think with any luck we should be 3 points better off after the game – we certainly hope so.
