Newcastle ace Yohan Cabaye admits he has yet to find the form he produced last season which made him an instant hit with the Geordie faithful.
The French international has yet to score in 2012/2013 season since re-joining the team four weeks later than the rest of his team mates after participating in Euro 2012.
“My pre-season wasn’t very good.
“I need to keep working, keep playing and need to be fit, because if you are not fit in England, it’s really hard,” Cabaye told BBC Newcastle.
Cabaye joined Newcastle in 2011 from Lille and has scored 4 goals in 39 Appearances on Tyneside, with his Premier League form last season drawing recognition from higher reputation clubs.
The 26-year-old midfielder is yet to get off the mark this season in the first five games of the season and will be part of a Newcastle side that will take on Bordeaux in the Europa Cup as he looks set to put an end to his baron run.
