Andros Townsend was our best signing in January and has turned out to be one of our best signings of the season and he´s immediately been able to produce for Newcastle and already has three goals and two assists in just eight appearances.
Andros is also very positive and says the whole team is confident at the moment and the lads can match any team at St. James Park where we still have to play Crystal Place on Saturday and Tottenham on the very last day of the season.

Two wins in those games would help us survive, especially if we can beat Aston Villa a week on Saturday on the road.
This is what Townsend has said:
“We’re always confident. We’re a confident bunch of boys, especially at St James’ Park where we know we’re a match for anyone,”
“We’ve shown this season we’re a match for anyone at home.” “Palace are a good side, but we’re going to go into the game full of confidence and hoping to get another three points.”
“Before Christmas, for two or three months I was in the U-21s for Spurs playing at non-league grounds on Monday nights.”
“So I’m loving playing in the Premier League and I’m loving playing at big stadiums and showing people what I can do again.”
“Obviously, it’s a difficult situation I’ve gone into, but I’m loving being back in the Premier League.”
“I’ve been happy with the amount of goals and assists I’ve been able to contribute to this team.”
“I know the hard work starts now. We’ve got three games left, and if we’re going to stay up, not just me, but the whole front four are going to need to contributes with goals and assists.”
We cannot control what Sunderland and Norwich City will do in their final four games of the season, but we can control what we do.
And you can spend hours and hours on what may happen with the various results of the three teams fighting it out.
And the pundits will be only too willing to tell you which of the three clubs they think will survive.
But all that doesn´t mean much – in fact it means nothing.
What is important is that Newcastle play at their very best in every single remaining game.
That´s Rafa´s philosophy and we´e sure in his press conference tomorrow he will stress that.
Rafa and our players will be going all out to get three wins in a row for the first time this season in the final three games of what has been another disastrous season for the club.
It will be a mini-miracle if we can do that – so our players have nothing to lose.
Go for it!
