Chris Hughton is starting to feel some heat as he tries to guide Newcastle United to promotion in their first season down in England’s second division.
Chris Hughton – crucial week coming up
And Chris believes this next week is one of the biggest weeks of the season, as the team has the chance of getting two home wins.
Newcastle will play Coventry City on Wednesday evening (7:45 pm KO), and then play Preston North End on Saturday (3:00pm KO).
Manager Hughton talked about the two games today:
“It’s a big week for us, as is every week between now and the end of the season, but we have to capitalize on the fact we’re at home.”
“This could be a week when we get two vital wins on the board.”
It was good to see Andy Carroll score again, and the lad’s now got 5 goals in the last 6 games, and he certainly got us a point we really didn’t deserve on Saturday afternoon.
But we’ll take it.
The good way of looking at the game on Saturday is that we were outplayed yet we still picked up a point.
And Chris is right, this week is very important in Newcastle’s promotion drive.
Now the lads have to show they are the real deal, by getting two successive home wins. Nothing less will be good enough.
