Newcastle have some payback to make at Portsmouth on Saturday, for their 4-1 humiliating defeat at St. Jamesâ€™ Park on November 3rd last year.
Steve Harper – confident of getting a result on Saturday
Newcastleâ€™s goalkeeper Steve Harper is confident that Newcastle are now ready to get their revenge when they travel to Fratton Park for Saturday’s game with the now FA Cup Finalists.
Of course this will the first game against Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp, who was close to becoming Newcastleâ€™s manager in January.
Steve Harper told Newcastle World TV.
“We certainly owe them one,” “To be three down at home inside 11 minutes is something I never want to repeat.â€
“We were gutted after that game and it was one of the lowest points of the season.â€ “But credit to Portsmouth, they’ve had a good year and are now in the FA Cup Final.”
“It will be a tough game because it’s always a difficult place to go and it’s a great atmosphere.â€
“But the form we’re in at the moment means we’re looking forward to it and are extremely confident of getting a result.”
It will be an interesting game on Saturday, and will go somewhere towards letting the Newcastle fans know just how good this current side is.Â A win would extend the Newcastle winning streak to 4 games, and will auger well for where we can finish in the league this season.
The goal has to be to overtake both Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, and get into 10th place in the league. That would help Newcastle fans forget about what has been a rather depressing season in terms of achievement – or to be more accurate – non-achievement.
What do you think about this?
