Coloccini not getting carried away

Published Add your comment

A look at the Barclays Premier League table makes happy reading for Newcastle at the moment, with the north-east club currently sitting pretty in fourth position.

Eight points from four games - with only one goal conceded - represents a fine start indeed for Alan Pardew's side, who travel to Aston Villa on Saturday.

And Toon skipper Fabricio Coloccini has challenged his teammates to continue picking up points as the new campaign begins in earnest.

“Things have been good so far but we’re not getting carried away,” the defender told The Chronicle.

“It is still very early, but we had a good start last season and that helped us and the same thing has happened again.

"It has given us something to build on in the next few weeks and I hope we keep going and taking points.


“Our home form will be important, but it is always good when you are doing well in away games as well.”

Despite being solid at the back, Newcastle have been profligate in front of goal - netting in just two of their league outings so far.

Pardew had been desperate for the board to land him a new No.9 prior to the transfer deadline, but Coloccini already have enough quality at St James' Park to ensure a goal drought will not continue.

“We have very good creative players," added the Argentine. "We have strong attackers and strong midfielders.

“I really don’t think there will be a problem in terms of scoring.”
