Newcastle United’s star captain Kevin Nolan has urged fans to stick with the club and motivate Toon players to keep out of the drop zone.
“We have had a few scrapes and heavy defeats, but they [the fans] are going to be key to us staying up. We were concerned before the game and we are concerned now,” Nolan told The Journal.
“We are all big enough and accountable, there is not one man who is going to take the blame on his own. We are in it together, We hope the fans stick with us. It is going to be tough.”
Newcastle currently sit at 11th on the table, but are just four points clear of the relegation zone. Newcastle were only promoted to the Premiership flight at the start of the current season after being relegated in 2009.
Every game is a must win now for the Magpies with only seven more to play over the rest of the season. To lose on the weekend to Stoke 4-0 has left Nolan and Newcastle with an uphill battle to stay in the top flight.
“I am very disappointed and it is a very disappointed dressing room. I’m devastated for the fans who have travelled all this way and seen that,” Nolan said of the Stoke match.
“I can only apologise and hope we can put it right against Wolves in a couple of weeks."
