Hughton has reminded supporters that even though we have just 2 points from 12 we are still in an automatic promotion spot.
Chris Hughton – still second top
Chris talked about our bad spell over the last 4 games:
“We are disappointed, but that is the league we are in.” “It is not only us who has gone through some difficult times at the top end of the table.”
“We have an opportunity tomorrow to put it right.” “I have not been too unhappy with the performance either at Scunthorpe or in the second half at Forest, where we created the bulk of the chances.”
“Of course, it is about turning that into wins and we have not been able to do that. This is an opportunity against Doncaster to change that.”
“The expectations are always going to be with us.” “We are a side which plied out trade in the Premier League last season and there are always going to be big expectations from everybody, including our fans.”
“That is a pressure we have to live with throughout the season.”
We need 3 points tomorrow, and also we hope the fans can support Chris – because he’s an hones guy doing the best he can to get the lads promoted.
Aren’t we shooting ourselves in the foot a little, if we don;t support the manager?
He’s done really well so far and now has to break this bad run of form over the last 4 games. If we can win tomorrow afternoon, things will look a lot brighter on Tyneside, that’s for sure.
