Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton insists Marlon Harewood will come good.
The on-loan Aston Villa striker has been booed by Toon fans since his arrival.
â€śWhat youâ€™ve got in Nile Ranger is a young lad whoâ€™s done well in the period heâ€™s been here. Heâ€™s come on and made an impact in games and I think it was more the fact that they were pleased to see Nile coming on.
â€śWith Marlon itâ€™s something that strikers go through, itâ€™s about scoring goals. If I look at Marlonâ€™s general contribution, we knew when he came it was on the back of not having had a full pre-season.
â€śWeâ€™re seeing in the games and in training that heâ€™s a player who will get stronger and stronger during the time that heâ€™s here. The most important thing is that heâ€™s on the side of a winning team thatâ€™s at the right end of the table. The booing is nothing that concerns me.â€ť
