Taylor demands Newcastle better 12th place finish

Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor says they must better last season's 12th place finish.

Newcastle looked set to end their first season back in the Premier League in its top half until a last-minute equaliser from Somen Tchoyi denied them three points at home to West Brom.

"The players felt disappointed in ourselves and disappointed for the fans that afternoon, because I think they expected us to either get more goals in the second half or at least see the game out," Taylor, a contender for the vacant captain's armband, told his club's official website.

"It was not a nice way to end things last season, but overall we did well and we can improve.

"We finished 12th so hopefully we can do even better."
