With 13 games to go and Newcastle only 8 points clear of 3rd placed Nottingham Forest, the club can still take nothing for granted this season.
Mike Williamson – taking nothing for granted
And it’s good to hear from new center-back Mike Williamson, that the lads are taking each game on its merits and not getting carried away.
Mike said today:
“We have not been looking at records. We have just been trying to push on and win regardless of what run we have been on.”
“That has been the key to our season really, you cannot get bogged down by records, runs. We are all wanting to get as many results and points on the board as we can.”
And as we expected, Williamson also played down his mini altercation with captain Alan Smith in injury time during Saturday’s 2-1 win at Watford.
“It was hectic towards the end but what do you expect when there is a lot of pressure on you?”
“They were always going to pile the pressure on but I think we withstood most of it, even if there were some words said.”
“That just shows how much we care.”
Next up for Newcastle are Barnsley on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 pm and we’ll be hoping that by 5:00 pm Saturday we’ll have extended our winning streak to 4 games.
Howay The Lads!!
