Kevin Keegan was pleased with the 4th win in 6 games for Newcastle this afternoon against Sunderland at St. James’ Park.
Kevin Keegan – not a classic but we deserved the win
Keegan told the BBC after the game:
â€œIt wasn’t a classic. We never really got going as a team but the fact we won it tells you we have players like Michael Owen who can get us something.â€
“The scoreline of 2-0 was maybe about right but Sunderland fans might say it slightly flattered us.â€
“It was a hard game and we were never on easy street despite the early goal and one just before half-time.â€
It was a good win and the 4th clean sheet in our unbeaten run of 6 games. So you cannot really ask much more than that – a win and a clean sheet at home. It was a sell-out crowd again of over 52,000.
West Ham are next up next Saturday (3:00 pm KO), and Newcastle could also win at Upton Park if they can keep their good form up. We think they can.
