Fitz Hall has come out today and talked about Newcastle’s promotion chances.
Fitz Hall – we can only look after ourselves
The Queens Park Rangers defender, who is on loan at Newcastle through the end of the season, told the Evening Chronicle today:
“It’s a big boost to be top of the league again.” “That’s where we want to be at the end of the day.”
“We want to look down at everybody else and try to pull away from them.” “If we can get six points it will take us in the direction we want to go in.”
“It’s time to make a push now until the end of the season and we need to start with the home games.”
Fitz has now started the last 3 games, and surprisingly was chosen ahead of Mike Willianmosn last saturday.
Fitz is keen to get Newcastle back on the winning track tomorrow night:
“We’ve got breathing space now in the next two home games.” “We have to push on and look to get three points.”
“Swansea was a tough place to go and get three points.” “But we came away with something and it is certainly a point we can clutch on to and build on.”
Of course Nottingham Forest seem to be going through their own self-destruction losing three of their last four leage games.
Tonight they have a tough home game against Sheffield United, who are now a team in form pushing for a play-off place.
“All we can keep doing is looking after ourselves.” “If we can keep looking down on everybody else then we know we are doing something right.”
“We are just concentrating on ourselves. We’ve gone through a period of three games in quick succession.” “We have two more coming up. We’ll take time to recuperate and then move on.”
Fitz is right on, all Newcastle can do now is their very best in every single remaining game.
There’s 16 games left, and let’s hope on Saturday night, when we’ll have 14 games to go, we’re 6 point better off from the points we have today.
That’ll give us 66 points – not too bad – and we’ll be top of the league still.
