Bacuna - 'anything possible' at 'tough' Newcastle

11th February 2019, 18:26 by Simon Barlow

Juninho Bacuna says Huddersfield showed they will not give up against Arsenal and that "anything is possible" at Newcastle.

The rock-bottom Terriers have just 12 matches left to pick up the points needed to retain their Premier League status and will next face relegation rivals Newcastle at St James' Park on Saturday week.

Magpies manager Rafa Benitez thinks his side need 36 points to avoid the drop but Bacuna knows Town need to think in terms of three points at a time when they head to the north east later this month.

"We are playing good and showing it on the pitch and we have to keep going," said the Dutchman. "It’s a tough place to go but anything is possible."

Bacuna made his fourth successive Premier League start on Saturday and, with three of those games coming under new head coach Jan Siewert, he will be looking to start again against Newcastle.

"For me it’s good to start games and play a position I can do best," he added to The Examiner. "I like to play football and I think I showed that in the last few games and I hope I can stay in and keep going and fight for the club.

"We have had three games now under the new coach and we have played the same formation. Now we need to show it on the pitch and get a result."
