Local lad Paul Dummett is back in the starting lineup on Tyneside, and he has talked today on nufcTV about the Newcastle fans.
On Monday night at the Emirates Newcastle again had some fantastic support from our fans but the team did not play well, and we went down 2-0.
The form of Newcastle was the disappointing thing in that game, and the 2-0 scoreline could have been worse.
Newcastle now have a tough game against Crystal Palace on Saturday at St. James’ Park, and we can make it six successive home wins.

This is what Dummett has said to nufcTV today:
“The support has been amazing all season, home and away.” “They travel away brilliantly.”
“We always take our biggest allocation, and I can’t thank them for their support enough.”
“It was a pity we couldn’t get the three points for them traveling all that way on a Monday night.”
“Hopefully we can get the next win in the Premier League as soon as possible to make us safe.”
“We have been in good form with the wins we’ve had.”
“We know it will be a difficult game (against Palace) as they have some good players but we’ll be ready.”
“We had a rest, but we will work hard in training.”
“Hopefully we can get that sixth win and make ourselves safe in the Premier League .
“Then we will try to get other results and try to push on and finish strongly like we did last season.”
Paul has appeared 20 times in the Premier League this season and in total has played 162 games with 3 goals and one assist for his home town club after coming through the Academy. 1
Rafa will have the lads ready to go against Palace and if we ever needed to get a win – it’s on Saturday.
Howay The Lads!!
