Hughton deserves applause - Harper

Published Add your comment

Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper has hailed former boss Chris Hughton for the part he played in rekindling the club's fortunes.

Hughton stepped into one of the most challenging jobs in football after Newcastle's relegation, but he helped the Magpies return to the top flight at the first attempt. He will be back on Tyneside on Sunday for the first time since his departure in December 2010, this time as manager of Norwich.

"He did a fantastic job here and I am sure the fans will reflect that by giving him a fantastic ovation on Sunday up until kick-off, and then as soon as kick-off comes they will be desperate for three points," Harper said.
