John Carver makes a promise to Newcastle United fans

St James Park

Newcastle United boss John Carver has commented on frustration during the club's difficult start to March.

Newcastle United manager John Carver has made a promise to the club’s fans, as reported by the Chronicle.

The Magpies boss has said that he will do everything he can to get results moving in the right direction after back-to-back defeats at the start of March against Manchester United and Everton.

The side looked particularly flat against the Toffees over the weekend, but the boss has suggested that he’s going to work hard to ensure that the side pulls through and gets back on track.

“I cannot magic something up, but I will give the situation everything and work with what I have,” said Carver.

“I think the majority of fans understand that.”

“I’m not losing people through silly training-ground injuries, I’m losing them through silly red and yellow cards.”

The defeats leave Newcastle in 11th place with 35 points and battling to get back into the top half as quickly as possible.

The Magpies have a healthy and safe cushion over the clubs battling in and around the bottom three, but the boss will be wary of two defeats becoming three and the side suffering a serious slide down the table.

In terms of realistic aims, the first target will be to hit the 40 point mark as quickly as possible.

Then the side can think about challenging for the top eight, which is currently seven points away as things stand.

The manager is clearly frustrated that he’s losing players because of silly decisions and all he can do is stress the need for great discipline over the rest of the season.
