As reported by the Chronicle, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez last night praised his players after a hard fought 2-2 draw away at Norwich City.
Speaking after the game, Benitez said about the race for promotion: “It doesn’t matter what other teams will do.
“If we get four points every two games – we will be up. If we can create chances and get a point you have to be happy.”
He was however, realistic about the game, adding: “We gave them belief they could get a result.
“The way the players responded in the second half though was brilliant. I told them to forget about the mistakes.
““It had gone. You concentrate on what is to come.”
“It’s always important in football, anything can happen.
“That’s why people like football. You can lose games after having 20 chances.”
His players clearly did exceptionally well to forget their mistakes and come back from a goal down to snatch what could prove to be a crucial draw, in the dying minutes of the game.
