Newcastle United

Diame targets another three points

7th March 2019, 06:38 by Michael Holland

Newcastle must make home advantage count once again when they face Everton at St James' Park this weekend, Mo Diame says.

Newcastle have dragged themselves away from the relegation zone with home wins over Cardiff, Manchester City, Huddersfield and Burnley but they still need more points in the bag to be mathematically safe.

Another three against the Toffees would go down very nicely and Diame says they have to take advantage of being on home soil.

"It's a difficult one," Diame said. "We know Everton are tough to beat but again we must do what we have in the last few games we must repeat what we've done.

"The atmosphere has been great in the last few games and we must use that again now. We know what we need to stay up. It is just a case of going out and doing it now.

"The most important thing for us is to stay up and get more points. We have to make sure all the fans want to come back next season.

"We want to again enjoy the Premier League - that's the most important thing."
