Aaron Lennon fully expects Newcastle to attack from the off today and said that is just the way he likes it.

The flying winger - who this week signed a new contract to extend his stay at the Club - believes an attacking encounter suits the style of our team, rather than games where the opposition sit deep and attempt to play us on the break.

Glenn Roeder's side are seeking to break a sequence of four straight defeats, having previously been unbeaten in six games under the caretaker boss.

"They are going through a bit of a patch," considered Aaron. "Newcastle will come and attack us and I think it is good when teams do that, rather than try to just defend.

"It could be a good time to play them," he added cautiously of our St James' Park date. "Whoever we play now will be a difficult game, the gaffer says every game is a cup final now and we've got to look to win every one.

"I think it will be a great game. I have been there a few times but never played there and it will be a great experience for me."

Meanwhile, Aaron feels it was a show of spirit that saw the team through to victory from a goal behind against West Brom on Monday.

"We started off a bit sloppy and didn't really get going. West Brom played well and set their stall out with a packed midfield - especially after they got the goal.

"It was difficult for us, but we created a few chances before half-time and knew once we got one we would go on and win the game. We have the spirit and have showed it many times, we will never give in and that is a brilliant quality.

"Everyone is together."
