Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has set his team the target of going through the Championship season without losing a home game.
Chris Hughton – let’s go unbeaten at home
Now that Newcastle are out of the FA Cup, all attention returns to the promotion race, starting with Wednesday’s game with Crystal Palace at St James’ Park – KO 7:45 pm.
Newcastle boss Chris Hughton told the Sunday Mirror:
“We have made St James’ Park a fortress this season. No one has beaten us there.”
“But if we are to go and win promotion then we have to maintain that home form until the end of the season.”
“It is vital to keep the home run going against Palace. We want to get back to winning ways, after drawing with West Brom.”
And given the trouble Andy Carroll has had at the Blu Bambu nightclub, in the Bigg Market in Newcastle’s city center, news today that Chris Hughton has banned his players from attending the club.
The club has been especially popular with the club’s younger players, and that should help to keep Andy out of any future troubles – good.
