Krul upbeat on Newcastle survival

GK - Tim KrulKeeper Tim Krul is confident Newcastle will avoid relegation this season ahead of the visit of Fulham on Sunday.

The St James’ Park side are just three points clear of the drop zone ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures but Krul insists his side will retain their top-flight status.

Krul made his return from an ankle injury in the 3-1 Europa League defeat at Benfica on Thursday and the Dutchman is keen for his side to forget about the result and ensure they take all three points when Fulham visit on Sunday to edge closer to survival.

“The next three games are massive. We need to get three points off Fulham. We know that,” Krul told The Chronicle.

He added: “I think we’ll be fine. They’ve [Fulham] got massive quality – we know that – but we’ve got massive quality and with 52,000 behind us, they’ll push us on to win.”.
