Ryan Taylor, who scored a 35 yard classic goal against Accrington Stanley in midweek, has been in excellent form so far this season.
Ryan Taylor – acknowledges fans after wonder goal last Wednesday night
And Ryan has talked to the Mirror this morning, and says that his Newcastle team will prove they are not just back in the top flight of English football to make up the numbers:
This is what Ryan said, as he talked about Newcastle’s 3-2 win at Accrington Stanley in mid-week:
“It is a wake up call for the league. We have not come back to be pushovers. We have not left the Championship to go back there.”
“We like to think we are a Premier League team and although we have got to keep our feet on the ground and keep working, come the end of the season we will be fine if we can carry on putting in performances like that.”
And manager Chris Hugton talked about Newcastle needing to pick up points away from home this season, and the fact that today’s opponents, Wolves, are now a very decent side.
“Our ability to stay in the division will be based on our home form which at this moment’s very good! But I feel we’ll need to pick up a percentage of points away from home.” “All we can hope is the experience we gained on our travels last season will keep us in good stead for this season.”
“They’re a good example because of what they’ve done in the last couple of seasons. In particular the second half of last season and the way they went about it.
“They’ve been able to continue that going into this season and in the first two games you can see where they strengthened. They’ve gained confidence for last season and Wolves plus Birmingham are great examples for us.”
It will be a good test of the Tyneside side this afternoon, and we’d like to be in the points with a draw being quite satisfactory, but a win would be great.
