Newcastle captain Coloccini blasts: Keep this up and we'll be relegated

Newcastle United skipper Fabricio Coloccini admits defeat to Hull City was not good enough.

Coloccini didn't mince his words when he told his team-mates that United would be relegation fodder unless they buck their ideas up.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "If we want to be serious about being in the top 10 or look to bigger things or be a big team in the Premier League we have to start to take the chances we have.

"If not we are going to have problems. We do not want to be like we were last season.

"We ended the season fighting against relegation, we can't have that again.

"So we have to look at our mistakes and keep going.

"When we have chances to beat teams like Hull we have to take them.

"We have to learn.

"Now we have to look to Leeds, get the win and go through in the cup."
