Kevin Nolan has certainly been knocking in the goals this season with six goals already to his name.
Kevin Nolan – top scorer with 6 goals so far this season
Five of those goals are in the league, and of course the Liverpudlian bagged a great hat trick against an out-classed Ipswich Town side last night.
Manager Chris Hughton is well aware of the excellent form being shown by the former Bolton captain right now, and he says the player is on fire at the moment.
After the game last night Newcastle boss Hughton said:
“Kevin’s on fire at the moment and he was outstanding today.” “He is capable of scoring goals and at the moment he can’t stop scoring – long may it continue.”
“His first was a fantastic header – he had a similar chance at Blackpool but unfortunately missed that one – but this was a top-drawer finish.”
“For his second he’s found a turn of pace and it’s a lovely hook inside the defender and a cool finish.” “His third was a little easier but capped a great team display and individual display from Kevin.”
Newcastle were by far the better team last night, and the Magpies stunned Ipswich with 3 goals in 4 minutes, after a half hour of the game.
The contest was essentially over at that point, and Newcastle went on to easily get their 7th win of their first 9 Championship games – not a bad start at all – but we have to keep it up.
That means beating QPR at St. James’ Park on Wednesday evening KO 7:45 pm, in our next league game.
