Dummett urges Newcastle to produce more of the same

Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett has urged his side to consolidate on their fine win over Liverpool.


The doom and gloom surrounding the Magpies has been lifted for just a little while following the their 2-0 victory over the previously high-flying Reds at St James' Park last weekend.

Dummett believes that Newcastle's performance against Liverpool was 'brilliant' and has now urged his team to replicate such a showing in the coming weeks in order to get their flailing season back on track.

Dummett told NUFC TV: "It was a brilliant win against a top side. All the players, as a team, put in the graft and if we can perform like that week in, week out, I don't think we'll go far wrong.

"We've had a lot of criticism over the last two weeks - and especially the last week, after the Palace game. We've took a lot; the team, the manager, the whole club, so it's nice for us to go out there and show that we do care.

"Keeping a clean sheet for a defender is always big and then we got the two goals as well. As a team we defended really well - man for man, I think we were better all over the pitch and that showed. Even at the end, we were throwing bodies in front of the ball and blocking shots."
