Scott Parker assesses Newcastle

“Newcastle have had some up and down results, like a lot of teams this year, but they’re a very good side who will cause teams problems.

 

"They’ve got some very good personnel in their team.

 

“But in saying that, we’re in a good run, we’re in a good vein of form, so for sure we’re going to go up there and try and win the game.”

What Steve Bruce had to say about Fulham

"Fair play to the manager and his coaching staff because they are certainly better in recent weeks.

"It'll be another tough game."
