New Newcastle signing Kevin Nolan insists he did not even consider the possibility of having to play Coca-Cola Championship football nest season when he joined Toon. The 26 year old said: "That's something I haven't even thought about, really.
"I know there is that old saying, 'We are too good to go down', but we have got the strength of character in the dressing room, from what I have seen so far.
"We have got a few lads injured at the moment. But they will be back come the crunch at the end of the season, so it is about us now trying to cement places in the team so we don't get pushed out by those lads when they come back."
