Coloccini eyes response
[[views]], BY ClubCall
Fabricio Coloccini wants his Newcastle team-mates to take out their weekend frustrations on Leeds in this week's Capital One Cup clash.
The Magpies looked on course to take all three points from their Premier League clash with Hull City on Saturday but twice surrendered the lead before Sone Aluko's stunning volley gave the visitors the spoils.
Victory for the north-east outfit would have seen them move level with Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool on 10 points but they remain in 12th place in the standings below Steve Bruce's side on goal difference.
The players were booed off the pitch by some sections of the Toon Army after the contest and Coloccini admits that words were said in the dressing room.
"There were bad feelings after Hull," he told the Chronicle. "Frustration, anger and everything you'd expect. It's difficult to speak about it because a lot of things happened on the pitch that I'm angry about."
Alan Pardew's men are back in action on Wednesday against the west Yorkshire side and Coloccini is looking for an immediate response.
"We have a game on Wednesday and we have to turn the page right now," he added. "We must look to the next game."
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Newcastle to bounce back and finish in the top six this season and they are next in top-flight action against Everton on Monday, September 30.
