Newcastle skipper eager to repay fans

Fabricio Coloccini has said that he was impressed with the Newcastle United fans’ reaction and support at Blackburn Rovers and wants to repay them with victory at Stoke City.
As many as 4,000 supporters travelled to Ewood Park to back the Magpies on Wednesdy as Newcastle suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the Carling Cup.

The Newcastle fans applauded the players off the field despite the resulting finishing 4-3 to Blackburn and now their skipper Coloccini is despeate to pay pack the fans against Stoke on Monday.
Coloccini told The Chronicle: “Everyone knows our supporters – they’re always with us. That’s good, and we have to say thank you for coming and supporting us.

“We hope to take three points for them at Stoke. It’s still positive. We have to look forward.”
Describing the mood of the dressing room after the game, he said: “We’re not happy. We didn’t play well in the first half – we didn’t do what we knew we had to do on the pitch. I think we gave them those 45 minutes.”

He said: “We showed our character. If we show that character every game, we’ll be OK.”
