Jack Colback has been interviewed in the local press today and he says we need to go on a winning run to escape the relegation zone.
It´s supriusin g how a run of wins can quickly lift you up the table and last season after we had won our first league game against Leicester City 1-0 at home we followed that with four successive league wins and in addition a win for the first time at the Etihad Stadium in the League Cup.
Jack Colback – we need a run of wins
We went from 3rd bottom of the league with 4 points from 7 games before the Leicester game to 5th top after our fifth successive league win – a 1-0 home win against QPR.
We had 19 points from 12 games and we need to do a similar thing right now to get us out of the relegation zone and up that league table.
This is what Jack Colback has said today:
“We showed that when we won two in a row last time against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur – you quickly jump up the league.”
“Then we got into a rut where we didn’t win a game, and we got sucked back in.” “It’s important that we go on runs – it really lifts you up the table.”
“But we’ve got to keep our feet on the ground.” “It’s just one win, and we’re still very much down there, but we’ll be looking forward to the Watford game.”
“We looked at these three games last week, and we said we wanted to win all three of them.” “I wasn’t at Watford in the Cup earlier this month, but it looked like we could have won that one too.”
“Man United, you take a point.” “We won against West Ham, so that’s four points from six in the league – and now we look to kick on.”
Watford have lost their last four league games and are out of sorts at the moment so it´s an excellent chance for Newcastle to get another win.
But when we have had these opportunities in the past this season we have failed.
It´s time kick on – as Jack says – and win this game with only 16 league games to play.
Howay The Lads!!
