It was exactly what we wanted – another win even although it was tough, although the games are all tough at this stage of the season especially against those teams fighting relegation like Wigan.
Ask Huddersfield – who lost 1-0 at home today to Burton Albion and we play the Brewers on Wednesday night.
Delighted Newcastle fans took to Twitter after the game – we are 3 points closer to that promotion.
Howay The Lads!!

Winning is ALL that matters…..SUPPORT the lads to promotion #nufc

Not a great performance but we showed character to get the win.
Points are all that matters at this stage of the season.#NUFC

Dreadful referees, woeful linesmen, David Pruttons predictions, channel 5 highlights…all soon to be a distant nightmare #NUFC

Another giant stride towards the ultimate goal today. Well done to the lads. #NUFC

Huddersfield’s defeat opens up a TEN point gap between #NUFC in 1st and the Terriers 3rd place. Leeds could cut that lead to 9 if they win.

Rafa: “2 or 3 counter attacks where just the final pass wasn’t right. But, we won… you have to be pleased with reaction of players.” #nufc
