Newcastle United

Defender urges Newcastle to push on

8th April 2019, 10:19 by Nick Harris

DeAndre Yedlin has urged Newcastle to put the disappointment of a home loss behind them and go on and secure their top-flight future.

The Magpies went into Saturday's clash with Crystal Palace looking for a sixth successive home victory which would have taken them to 38 points and effective safety, but ultimately emerged on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline.

To rub salt into the wound, they were the architects of their own downfall as they squandered a series of good chances before succumbing to a sucker punch after conceding a late penalty.

Despite slipping to 15th place in the table, they remain seven points clear of Cardiff in the last remaining relegation berth, but know there is still work to be done ahead of Friday night's difficult trip to Leicester.

Yedlin said: "We have to move on as quickly as possible, that's the motive. We have to focus on the next game.

"We are quite close to safety now."
