There will be a number of Newcastle fans this morning who are relieved that Newcastle did so well in winning 4-1 against Coventry City last night.
Chris Hughton – people were worried
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has talked today about the worried fans of Newcastle United:
“I think it’s understandable people were worried. We have set high standards and we’d fallen below them, particularly at Derby,”
“You’re going to have your highs and lows and the last two away games we haven’t been at our best. But thankfully we were back to those high standards. We’re continuing to churn out results – we’re going to need to do that.”
“We’ll certainly need to take some of our home form into our away form if we want to achieve what we want to achieve this season.”
With the 4-1 win, Newcastle again took their goal difference (+31) to one better than WBA’s, and we need to get a few good wins during the run-in to further increase that goal difference, because of course it can be worth an extra point if teams are level.
Newcastle go all out at home and choose their side accordingly, with two attacking wingers in a 4-4-2 formation.
Maybe if we do more of that on the road we’ll get more wins – just a thought.
Yes, we were caught out at Derby County, but we surely can beat a lot of the teams during the run-in away from home.
Next chance to do that will a week on Saturday at Watford.
3 points in that game would be great.
