Newcastle striker Chris Wood: Two more wins and we're safe

Newcastle striker Chris Wood says two more wins will see them safe after last night's victory over Wolves.

Wood, whose 72nd-minute penalty paid off another instalment of the £25million the club invested in his services in January, is confident two more wins will compete the job. And with Leicester and Crystal Palace due on Tyneside inside the next fortnight, he is hoping they can get them as soon as possible.

Asked about the importance of the victory over Wolves, the New Zealand international told NUFC TV: “It's one step closer. Another couple of wins does it, so we're going to look forward to that.

“We've got some big games here at St James' Park over the next few weeks, so we've got enough opportunities to put it right sooner rather than later."

Wood added: “It's nice to get off the mark at St James'. It's been a while coming, The chances haven't been free-flowing for me, so it's nice to be able to stick the ball in the back of the net. It's fantastic."
