Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce will order his team to put their St James´ Park nightmare behind them as they attempt to return to winning ways against Liverpool.

The Magpies welcome Rafael Benitez´s men to Tyneside for what would be a tough fixture in any season but the game represents their first opportunity to address the horrific 4-1 capitulation against Portsmouth last time out on their own park which left the disbelieving Toon Army in militant mood.

Allardyce said: "Portsmouth capitalised on every single mistake we made at that particular time and got three goals up. The game was over and although we tried very, very hard after that, unfortunately we could not get back into the game to the point where we might have actually nicked something out of it."
