Assistant manager Kevin Bond expects the team to face a stern test at St. James’ Park on Sunday as we take on an unbeaten Newcastle side.

Alan Pardew’s team has made an impressive start to the season and lie in fourth place in the Premier League having taken 15 points from their opening seven fixtures.

We can leapfrog Newcastle with victory by a two-goal margin but Kevin is aware of the task at hand.

“We always knew that they (Newcastle) were capable of good things, but they’ve probably started the season better than maybe one or two people expected," he said.

“I’ve seen them play. They’re a strong side, well-organised, well-balanced and they’ve had a really good start to the season.

"Newcastle is always a tough place to go. It’s going to be a hard day and a difficult day, but one that we’re looking forward to.”

With four league wins on the spin, including a North London derby victory over Arsenal two weeks ago, the team go into the match in a rich vein of form.

Kevin, who worked at Newcastle as assistant manager alongside Glenn Roeder for a period in 2006, believes we’ll need a focussed performance on Sunday to come away with the points.

“Sometimes you need to grind out results and be strong and I certainly think we’re going to need to be resilient," he added. "Hopefully we’ll do that and get a good result."
