Krul: Stoke and Wigan games are vital

Published Add your comment

Goalkeeper Tim Krul has challenged Newcastle to prove they are worth a return to the Champions League - by beating Stoke and Wigan.

While title-chasing Manchester City and FA Cup finalists Chelsea may yet stand between Alan Pardew's men and their top-four dreams, Krul insists that victory over Stoke this Saturday and resurgent Wigan, who have beaten leaders Manchester United and Arsenal in their last two games, at the DW Stadium a week later will be equally important.

The 24-year-old Holland international told the Journal: "We are up there, but if you don't win against Stoke and Wigan, you don't deserve to be up there. We will look at the next two games and hope that we get the results that we need."
