Newcastle United defender James Perch has no doubts they'll stay up.

Perch is convinced the Magpies will soon kill off any lingering relegation fears.

After their draw with West Bromwich Albion, he said: "If we keep playing like that we will be fine.

"We have got a good enough team, we have got good enough players in the squad to make sure we don't go down.

"It is looking like it is going to be a low-points survival this year, but we still want to hit that 40-point mark to be sure.

"We just hope we keep playing well and picking up points away from home, and make sure our home form is a bit better."
