Newcastle Prepare For A Rejuvenated QPR Under Mark Hughes


Alan Pardew has told his Newcastle players they will have to be ready for QPR  tomorrow.

Alan Pardew – warning his players about QPR

Mark Hughes has just been appointed manager in place of the sacked Neil Warnock, and while the London club have lost six of their last eight league games and drew the other two, they will be wanting to stop that run, and turn things around – and quickly too.

QPR are in 4th bottom place in the league, and just one point above Bolton Wanderers and the drop zone.

This will be QPR’s first game under Hughes, and they will have had almost a full week to prepare for the game, although they will be short of some of their best players, including Joey Barton, who is serving a three match ban for being sent off against Norwich.

The game has an early kick-off at 1:30 pm and the Newcastle manager seems well aware of what dangers this game can bring:

“The players are going to want to impress him, and there will be a few new ideas on the training ground, which a different manager is going to bring,” 

“You get an uplift – there’s no doubt about that. What Mark and his team will be hoping is that not only do they get an uplift on Sunday, but they get one going forward.”

“It has a galvanising effect, and is something we are going to have to be on our guard for.”

Newcastle will be expecting to get all 3 points tomorrow.

We have won two of our last three league games,  since going on that six game run without a win,  so a win tomorrow could mean 9 points from the last four games, which is not too bad at all.

Newcastle are just one point behind Liverpool and 3 points behind 5th placed Arsenal, so a good run in the league over the  next few games could see us move up that league table.

With the defense now settled again with Mike Williamson and Davide Santon  in for  Steven Taylor, out for the season with his Achilles injury,  and Ryan Taylor –  the new look defense is the foundation on which Newcastle can build another good run in the league.

That’s what we are hoping for, and it will be a little disappointing if the lads cannot take all 3 points tomorrow.

What do you think?
