Andros Townsend has been a real star for Newcastle ever since he joined us in January of this year, but the unfortunate thing could be he will leave us through a release clause in his contract if we cannot survive the drop.
But Andros is doing his very best to save us with his four goals and two assists so far and he was out match-winner on Saturday along with a Man of the Match performance from our goalkeeper Karl Darlow.
Andros Townsend after 59 minutes – YES!
Andros was second in our Man of the Match polling and he has been a consistently good performer for the side – and Rafa has him playing near his best form.
Andros seems to be delighted to be at Newcastle and playing in front of 52,000 mad screaming Geordies.
The 24 year-old has also pointed out an advantage Newcastle have – we are now 4th bottom and have points on the board:
“Of course. That’s why you would rather have points on the board than games in hand.”
“We have got points on the board, we are above the relegation zone, and it is down to the other teams now to pick up points in their game in hand.”
“We have done our job, we continue to do our job and hopefully the other teams around us drop points.”
“We can only do our job. If we win the next two games and it is not enough, what can we do?”
“We have just got to do our business and hope the other teams around us drop enough points for us to stay up. That’s all we can do.”
Did I say we need two wins in our last two games?
