The Magpies boss thanks the fans

“The fans were with us all the way through the game and you can see when they are on form and singing, how much confidence it gives to the lads,” he said.

“Thanks to them and hopefully they can continue to do that when things aren’t going so well.

“That’s when we need them even more. I was delighted with them and thank you to them for their massive support they have given me since I came here.”
