Kevin Keegan knows there is still a lot to play for this season.
Kevin Keegan – still 15 points to play for
Newcastle’s manager seems keen to make it four wins in succession, so we can continue to build the momentum which he hopes will carry over into next season.
Kevin talked to Newcastle World TV today about tomorrow’s game:
“There’s still a lot to play for this season,” “We’re just two points behind Spurs now and it would be great to catch them.”
“They have had a massive investment and a new coach who has been there longer than I’ve been here.” “So that is one target, the other is can we win four games on the trot?”
“To do that is fantastic in any division in the world, let alone the Premier League.” “That would set us up very nicely for derby match.
“But one step at a time, we’ve had three very good performances and we are certainly going in the right direction.”
It is going to be a very interesting game tomorrow, because there’s no doubt Harry Redknapp has built an excellent team down on the south coast. And they’ve been rewarded with an FA Cup final place in May, and must stand every chance of winning that game against Cardiff City.
The Portsmouth lads will be full of confidence and it will be a carnival-like atmosphere as the fans welcome back the team to Fratton Park for the first time since they qualified for the FA Cup Final.
But Newcastle are a good side now, and need to concentrate on the business at hand, and keep it tight at the back – unlike our last meeting with Pompey when they scored 3 goals in the first 11 minutes of the game at St. James’ Park in early November.
If we can keep it tight and play like we did at Spurs, we have a good chance of collecting all 3 points tomorrow. But it will not be an easy game for us, that’s for sure.
