Remy Cabella says that a point against West Brom was a good one in the current circumstances but that Newcastle desperately need to win this away game at QPR on Saturday.
With only one win in six months away from home in the Premier League, Cabella is confident that the travelling fans will be giving their full support at Loftus Road.
Confidence is clearly a massive problem when you have been on the kind of run that United have experienced.
It remains to be seen whether that comeback point against West Brom will be enough to turn the tide, both in terms of the players’ confidence and the end result of the match.
Whilst West Brom were arguably the most negative team yet seen at St. James’ Park this season, Saturday is likely to be the exact opposite.
QPR will look to end the season with a win for the fans and the players themselves, after relegation was confirmed at the weekend.
An open game will hopefully suit the likes of Cabella who has been a major disappintment this season but to be fair, when you are a flair player in a struggling team who play in a negative style, the odds are stacked against you.
Speaking to the Chronicle, Remy Cabella also denied there was deep conflict within the squad, saying that the players are a group and continue to stick together:
“We’re a group and we are together, the target is now Saturday and with two games left we need to be together.
“It (v West Brom) was a good performance and in the end one point is good, but the next game is now important for everybody and we have to be solid and stay together at Queens Park Rangers.”
Fans behind us:
“We have to concentrate and focus on winning one game away from home, we need to be relaxed in some ways and not have too much pressure because it is difficult at the moment.
“We prefer to have them (the fans) all behind us and on Saturday we know they will be behind us, on the pitch we have to win for them.”
