Andy Carrol says the players are very anxious to put things right tomorrow against Doncaster Rovers at St. James’ Park tomorrow afternoon.
Andy Carroll – ready to put things right
Carroll told the Evening Chronicle today:
“We can’t wait just get on with it after Scunthorpe.” “We’re still hurting and we just want to get it out of our system.”
“It was disappointing and everybody was down after the game.” “But we just have to get on with working hard and doing our jobs and we’re confident we can make it happen.”
Newcastle were said to dominate the game at Scunthrope but there again some of our readers at the game, thought we didn’t deserve to win and left much to be desired.
“The game overall was bad because of the result.” “We understand that.”
“But the performance is something we can build on.” “We had a lot of chances and we just couldn’t take them.”
“If we can create as many again, maybe our luck can change in front of goal and we could be talking about a different scoreline on Saturday night.”
Carroll was on the receiving end of some physical treatment from Scunthorpe’s former Gateshead defender Rob Jones, but Andy can certainly handle the physicality of this league, that’s for sure.
“It has been tough and I have taken a few hits. But it won’t stop me – I’ll just keep going and do what I do.”
“You can’t let it get you down, you just have to keep on playing.”
But Andy now thinks Newcastle can get back on track tomorrow against Doncaster Rovers – and we have to hope that’s the case – because 4 games is too long to go in this league without a win.
“It’s going to be great to be back playing at St James’.” “But we’ve got to make it count.”
“The fans have been great with us and we will be looking to repay them tomorrow.”
“If we can get the three points, it will give us all a big lift and we need it at the moment.”
We’re not sure who Andy will partner tomorrow, and it may be that Kevin Nolan supports the big man tomorrow up front.
However, our choice would be to start two up front – and have Nile Ranger partnering Andy – right from the start.
When these young lads have played before together – they’ve looked good – and they’re a handful for any defense.
Chris will know he needs to get a win somehow in tomorrow’s game, otherwise there will be an increasing depression over the Tyne tomorrow night.
