£5m man: Here's the area Newcastle need to improve to start winning

Daryl Janmaat believes that Newcastle United must improve their finishing if they are to start collecting victories.

Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat believes that if the Magpies can improve their ruthlessness in-front of goal the three points will start coming. 

The side are still on the hunt for their first league victory of the season, after a dismal start to the Premier League campaign, but Janmaat doesn't believe they are too far away.

At the weekend the side battled back twice to come from behind to claim a point against Swansea City and their Dutch defender feels that if they just add a finishing touch to their play they will start moving up the table. 

"The last couple of games we have just missed a little bit with our finishing and if we improve this and keep playing like this the wins will come," he said to the Northern Echo

“We fight really hard for each other and that has to be one of the basics, and if we had had a little bit of luck late on we could have won it, but a point is a good result. It was a shame the keeper did well to save my shot but we have to keep going.”

Janmaat has settled in better than most following a £5 million move from Feyenoord this summer.

The right-back has a considerable amount of pedigree and was one of the Mapgies' marquee signings in the previous transfer window and he has not disappointed.

Whilst many of Alan Pardew's additions have struggled, Jamaat has settled in well to life on Tyneside and largely impressed with his showing so far.

Jamaat's hope that his teammates start taking his chances should be boosted by the return of Papiss Cisse. 

The striker has missed much of the season through injury, but is edging close to full-fitness now and is already making up for lost time.

The Senegalese front-man has netted two braces already and he will be determined to keep this form up after the international break when Newcastle take on Leicester City.
