Newcastle boss Chris Hughton says that his team will just have to battle their way out of the bad spell they are in at the moment, with a single point from the last two games.
Chris Hughton – we have to battle our way through
All teams, no matter who they are, have their blips during any season, and Newcastle are no exception.
But we just have to hope the lads are able to come back, and at home is where Newcastle can cement their automatic promotion place.
The Championship is a tough league, and one reason is because the games come thick and fast – Newcastle have 16 remaining league games that must complete by May 2nd – that’s about 75 days.
Chris told Sky Sports News today:
“It is relentless, the games, but from our point the only advantage is that it is the same for every club,”
“Perhaps we would have had more time for preparation and more time to reflect on games last season, but this season is different when you’re on the back of a win or a loss your straight into another game.”
“Our form this season, we have done well enough to maintain where we have been and there have been high and lows.”
“The most important thing for us is that in those periods we are not playing well, that we get something out of the games.”
“We have to make sure we take advantage of the good periods we have.”
Two wins by Saturday night would be just fabulous, and would certainly reduce the nerves of many Newcastle fans, including us.
Howay The Lads!!
