Newcastle boss Hughton: Carroll must step up game

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton says Andy Carroll must step up his game to compete in the Premiership.

Hughton just wants to see more of the same from the Geordie striker who netted 19 goals last season.

The Toon boss told the Evening Chronicle: "The only way he will progress is by doing the things he did last season.

"These are the important things for him. He has to develop as a player and takes the ups and downs.

"He's going into a more difficult league and will face better defenders than he was up against last season."
