James Perch is targeting a famous five with Newcastle United against Bolton Wanderers this afternoon.
James Perch: “It would be great to get five out of five.
“Bolton are a tough team to play against, but the way we’re playing at the moment, we feel we can beat anybody.
“That’s what we’re planning. We’ll see if it comes off again.
“It’s four wins out of four after Swansea, and we’re confident.
“Maybe it wasn’t us who played the best football at the Liberty, but we let Swansea have the ball and worked on our clean sheet and getting our two goals.
It’s massive, and you have to give Swansea a lot of respect. We did that, because they are a very good team.
“Maybe what Man City and Arsenal tried to do was out-pass them and play them at their own game.
“I think Swansea are one of the best teams in the league for doing what they do, so you have to think outside the box. It shows what we’re about.
“We left the two strikers up the field, and we knew we’d get space and time.
“With the quality that we’ve got up there, space and time is what we want them to have.
“To be fair, they punished Swansea. It’s brilliant as a centre-half to know that every time the ball goes in the opposition’s box, you have a chance of scoring a goal. It only takes a second.
“Once Papiss scored in the second half (to make it 2-0), it gave us a big sigh of relief.
“We have coped with almost everything.
“It is so pleasing for the club overall, but especially for the defence and Tim Krul. It’s massive.
“We know that if we kept a clean sheet, we’d have a chance. With the counter attacking style of play we’ve got, it gives us a great chance.”
