Paul Dummett gives promising admission concerning ‘fight’ in Newcastle’s squad

Dummett is certain that the Newcastle squad are well set to fight for their Premier League survival.

Newcastle head into the final day of the Premier League season looking to secure their top flight status, and defender Dummett has admitted to the Chronicle that the Magpies squad are well prepared to face the challenge.

The 23-year-old said: “If there are players in there who aren’t interested in fighting there’s no point in being involved. All you are going to do is bring a negative attitude around the squad, the stadium and training ground. You have got to be positive and everybody is up for the fight.”

This is certainly a promising thought for Newcastle fans, and one that should give much hope to the club that they will retain their top flight placing for next season.

The Magpies are two points clear of the final relegation place, which is currently occupied by a Hull side with a better goal difference. The Tigers face Manchester United needing to win, whilst Newcastle just have to match their result to stay in the Premier League.

Hull certainly have a tough task, and they are favourites for the drop, but under John Carver performances have been so poor that a Newcastle relegation is still a real possibility.

Many are hoping to see an improved performance from the Newcastle squad, and Dummett’s admission that the players are well up for the fight is certainly a promising one.

Should the players give their all in the final game, they should find no trouble in overcoming a remarkably lacklustre West Ham side, and securing their top flight status for another season.
