Aleksandar Mitrovic came on as a substitute in the second half, scored two good goals and was easily our Man of the Match on Saturday at Carrow Road in what was the worst result possible for Newcastle – a 3-2 defeat to our relegation rivals.
Mitro had an excellent game and what we liked most of all was his spirit and passion and some of our other players could do worse than look at Mitro as an example of the effort we need if we are to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

Unfortunately the way things stand at the moment, things do not look very good at all and unless we can start winning games our relegation could even be confirmed before the last game of the season.
This is what Aleksandar had to say on nufcTV after the game:
“I came from the bench, I scored two goals and I hope I helped my team a little to play better football than in the first half.” “In the first half, we didn’t play like we want but the second half was really good and we didn’t deserve to lose the game.”
“But we lost, and we need to move on and prepare for the next game.” “It’s much better if you score goals and you win. I don’t need to score if we win games.” “But it’s good for me, of course, and I hope I will continue with my goals.”
“The best way to move on is to win the next game.” “It will be difficult, Southampton away, but we must stay strong in our heads. It’s difficult now but we need to start winning games.”
“Our fans were amazing, like always. I hope they will stay with us for these seven games because we will need them now more than ever.” “With them, I think anything is possible.”
This is the situation at the bottom of the Premier League right now and it doesn’t look too good for us.
