Brown Low-Key Build Up Could Favour Newcastle!

... it will be business as usual when Newcastle come to town.

He claims it is NOT as big a game as Steve Harper makes out when he said yesterday "the Hull game is bigger than the FA Cup final I played in".

Which could be a benefit to Newcastle, if they are more fired up than the home side.

Phil Brown: "It doesn't count for anything other than the next opportunity to get three points.

"It's another one-off game and just 90 minutes to us and we have our tails up having won our last game at Fulham."

"Teams on 34 and 35 points are not out of trouble by any means and with 10 or 11 games left there are lots of twists and turns left in the season.

"If we win tomorrow we go level with Manchester City who are eighth in the league.

"There are lots of sides still involved and to say at this stage of the season that survival will be reached with fewer than 40 points is ridiculous.

"It's fair to say every side outside the top seven are in a relegation scrap. There are no free games and you have to earn every point in this league."
