Steven Taylor believes the win over Plymouth on Saturday shows a renewed commitment by Newcastle players to taking the club straight back to the Premier League this season.

It was from a great left wing corner from Geremi
Taylor told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I think we showed we were too strong for Plymouth in the end.”
“I was delighted to score and be part of it and spirits are high going into the cup game.”
“You saw that by the way we celebrated the goals.”
Taylor was devastated by the Coca-Cola Championship upset at Blackpool last Wednesday and so he should have been – Newcastle fans were.
But the accomplished 23 year-old believes the much needed victory over Plymouth on Saturday shows the Newcastle team this season are just determined to keep the winning ways going.
“We’ve bounced back.” “Blackpool hopefully was a little blip, but after this we’re back on track.”
“We feel we’re back in business and we’re looking forward to Peterborough.”
We do expect 19 year-old Tamas Kadar to start the game tomorrow, although new loan singing Zurab Khizanishvili seems cup-tied.
So either Coloccini (who very strong on Saturday) or Taylor will start the game on the bench, for a well earned rest.
We still expect a win tomorrow night, even with a younger weakened team, and we have to hope we can draw say Sunderland in the next round – home or away.
It doesn’t really matter the venue, because we can beat them at our place or theirs. 😀
A little wind-up there for the Sunderland fans!
