Another away game and more fantastic support for Newcastle United as 5600 fans made the journey to Deepdale in Lancashire for Saturday’s game against Preston North End.
And they were rewarded by a resilient and fighting Newcastle side who managed to take all 3 points against an impressive Preston side who pushed the Magpies all the way.
What with sold out games at St. James’ Park and the away allocation for road games quickly sold out, the Geordie fans are showing quite clearly why they are the best in the business.
DeAndre Yedlin in action at Preston
And Newcastle are currently a second division side.
A favorite of the Newcastle crowd this season is new arrival – American DeAndre Yedlin – who had another solid game at right back for us on Saturday.
After the game the Seattle-born youngster paid tribute to those dedicated fans:
“I hope this run continues and I hope we keep winning games. But in this league, anything can happen, so we can’t get too comfortable, we’ve just got to keep fighting.”
“The fans have been unbelievable – the amount of fans that come on the road is incredible, and then obviously our home support is top of the league.”
“So we’re very fortunate to have the fans that we have. As a whole club, we’re doing all right now, and we just need to keep it going.”
We can’t stop now, we can’t get too excited about it, because it’s a long season and anything can happen.”
Good words there from the young US International full-back and the fans deserve that recognition – they’ve been fantastic for Newcastle this season.
