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.
‚ÄúWhat you‚Äôve got in Nile Ranger is a young lad who‚Äôs done well in the period he‚Äôs been here. He‚Äôs 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.
‚ÄúWith Marlon it‚Äôs something that strikers go through, it‚Äôs about scoring goals. If I look at Marlon‚Äôs general contribution, we knew when he came it was on the back of not having had a full pre-season.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre seeing in the games and in training that he‚Äôs a player who will get stronger and stronger during the time that he‚Äôs here. The most important thing is that he‚Äôs on the side of a winning team that‚Äôs at the right end of the table. The booing is nothing that concerns me.‚ÄĚ
