As reported by the Chronicle, Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback has shared his views on the race for promotion.
Speaking ahead of today’s game against Aston Villa, Colback started by sharing his views on Huddersfield Town and the chasing pack, saying: “It’s getting irritating now, actually,”
“Of course you have a look at the other results, they are a part of the competition, you’re going to have a look after games. But we obviously focus on ourselves first.”
He then spoke about what Newcastle have to do in order to secure promotion, adding: “We know that we’ve put ourselves in a position where if we keep winning games or stay unbeaten and are consistent, then we’ll go up so we will focus on that first and foremost.”
“The gap obviously was a bit more healthy, they have closed the gap, credit to them because they keep wining games, but we’ve got to play everyone around us. It’s in our own hands.”
