Aleksandar Mitrovic has become the hero for Newcastle again when he scored two goals against Preston North End yesterday at Deepdale that give us a very difficult 2-1 win.
And four days ago at St. James’ Park he scored another two good goals and was the returning hero in the demolition of Preston by a score of 6-0.
After surprisingly losing to Wolves at home the last time we won 6-0 (at QPR), this time we managed to keep our win streak going and it is now up to 7 wins in all competitions.
Long may it continue.
Aleksandar Mitrovic scores Newcastle’s first goal
The 24 times capped Serbian International (6 goals) has talked about the team and the character of the side which goes to make up what is a great team spirit at Newcastle United this season.
This is what Mitro said after the game:
he 22 year-old “The best thing was that we won as a team.” “We won and got three points.”
“This was a hard away game, and a lot of teams will lose points here, for sure.” “We showed good character and that we learned from last season.”
“We had a good mentality and a little bit of luck, but if you want to win every game you need a bit of luck.”
“It’s important we keep going. We have a few more days to prepare for the next game.”
“It was a good ball from Ritchie for the second goal.” “I had a bit of luck that the defender didn’t react like he wanted to.”
“I knew the game would be hard and I wouldn’t have a lot of chances, so I tried to focus. I had two chances and I scored, so it was good.”
Newcastle are still 3 points above second-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, but we gained 3 points yesterday on both Norwich City and Huddersfield Town, who were taken apart 5-0 on the road yesterday at Brighton and Fulham respectively.
