We have three players within a couple of goals of each other so far this season at the Newcastle club.
Peter Lovenkrands – 12 goals so far this year – and all at home
Peter Lovenkrands has scored 12 goals, all this year and all have been scored at St. James’ Park, and that should guarantee him a start in the final 5 home games of the season.
And Kevin Nolan scored a goal in the second half on Saturday to keep him clear at the top of the Newcastle goals league, with 13 so far – unlucky for some.
Manager Chris Hughton would not be drawn on who would end up top scorer in what has been a terrific season so far for Newcastle.
When asked to name whom he thought would be top scorer Chris answered:
“I wouldn’t even think about doing that.” “In all honesty I don’t care and I’m not bothered.”
“In every game all I care about is if we score, whether that’s Coloccini and an own goal, as long as we score and we’ve got competition for places, then great.”
Andy Carroll will want to get back on the goals trail on Saturday at Middlesbrough after missing out on Saturday in Newcastle’s six goal haul.
Who do you think will end up top scorer on Tyneside this season?
