Aleksandar Mitrovic has told the Chronicle that it is amazing to play in-front of Newcastle United’s supporters.
Mitrovic joined Newcastle in the summer from Anderlecht, and he is still coming to terms with the support that the side receive at St. James’ Park.
Newcastle have disappointed so far this term, but they have still continued to be backed by great numbers at home - and the atmosphere during their most recent fixture against West Bromwich Albion was electric.
Newcastle beat the Baggies 1-0 to move out of the relegation zone, and Mitrovic admits that it is much easier to play at home, rather than away from St. James’ Park.
“We had here 52,000 behind us, it was amazing to play, they (the fans) were amazing like always and everything is much more easy when you play in front of people like we did," the Serbian international said.
“I think the football here is special.”
Newcastle’s home form has been the foundation which they have built their survival bid upon this season.
The Magpies are unbeaten at St. James’ Park in 2016, but they still need to improve on their travels if they are to be assured of safety.
Newcastle’s next match comes away at Stamford Bridge, and a win would take them even further clear of the bottom three.
