Match Preview

Hughton looks to maintain encouraging start Newcastle boss Chris Hughton is challenging his players to maintain the feelgood factor as they attempt to ensure they become a Barclays Premier League fixture once again. The Magpies have made an encouraging start to life back in the top flight having bounced back from something of a mauling at Manchester United in their opening encounter to trounce Aston Villa 6-0 and then claim a hard-fought draw at Wolves last time out. Those two games, and a 3-2 Carling Cup second-round victory at Accrington Stanley with a largely inexperienced side, have helped to create a similar atmosphere to the one which enveloped St James' Park last season as the club went on an unstoppable charge to the Championship title. Hughton said: "Anyone who has been involved in football a long time knows what being used to winning football matches can do to a team and a club. "It is going to be more difficult to get that sort of feel and the stability it gives you in the Premier League because it is a more difficult league. But our aim is to become a fixture in this league. "We have started well enough and there is a good feel around the place, probably because of the way we have gone about our business in the last three games." In-form striker Andy Carroll has returned to training after an ankle injury, and Hughton could hand debuts to summer signings Sol Campbell, Cheik Tiote and Hatem Ben Arfa. Meanwhile, Blackpool manager Ian Holloway believes the next few weeks could be crucial to his club's hopes of maintaining their top flight status. That's why he has drawn up a detailed plan so the players know exactly what their routine is. Next up are Newcastle with Holloway anxious to build on a good start that has seen his side take four points from a possible nine. He said: "We have just given the players a two-month schedule. My staff have produced it. "They will know what day they are off and what day they are in. They know it will be morning and afternoon. "The defenders will be doing certain things as will the midfielders and forwards. "This is the most comprehensive document that I have ever produced in my career and I am looking forward to implementing it. "We want to leave a mark on this world, so that people remember how well our team played and how well the supporters behaved. "The secret of this club is that the fans are embracing what we are trying to do. They are in their element. It is quite unbelievable. We want this great feeling to continue." The arrival of DJ Campbell from Leicester on transfer deadline day has strengthened Holloway's attacking options. Marlon Harewood could return against Newcastle - where he had a spell on loan - following an ankle injury while Luke Varney is looking to retain his place after scoring on his debut in the 2-2 draw with Fulham. Campbell scored 11 goals during a loan spell at Bloomfield Road in the second half of last season and Holloway wants the 29-year to replicate that form among the elite. Holloway said: "We would not be where we are today without his contribution last season. "We have some hard work to do to convince people that the boy will score at every level he plays in. But I am delighted to be working with him again."

Match Report

Adam inspires Blackpool win Charlie Adam burst Newcastle's bubble as Blackpool banked another three precious Barclays Premier League points on the road. The midfielder calmly slotted a 45th-minute penalty past keeper Steve Harper and immediately dedicated it to youth team coach Gary Parkinson, who is critically ill in hospital. Adam then produced the pass from which DJ Campbell sealed the 2-0 win late on, but only after goalkeeper Matt Gilks had produced a string of superb saves to deny Newcastle an equaliser. Gilks, who had kept out Kevin Nolan's first-half effort, frustrated Joey Barton, substitute Peter Lovenkrands and Andy Carroll as the Magpies staged a committed fightback in front of a crowd of 49,597. The defeat, Newcastle's first on their own turf in 27 attempts, served as a reminder to the Chris Hughton's men, if they needed one, that their 6-0 victory over Aston Villa in the last fixture at St James' Park, was a start and nothing more. Five months ago, Blackpool had arrived on Tyneside as one of the few sides to have beaten the Magpies in the Championship, and left on the wrong end of a 4-1 beating which was every bit as comprehensive as the scoreline suggests. They returned to the north-east knowing that Villa had also been sent packing as Newcastle romped to a stunning victory 24 hours after they had lost by the same score at Arsenal. But there was a determination about Ian Holloway's men from the off that they would not be blown away, and when referee Lee Mason sounded the half-time whistle, few inside St James' could have argued they were value for their 1-0 lead. Had it not have been for a superb double save by Harper, their lead might have been even bigger. The home defence was carved open by Adam's 12th-minute through-ball and the keeper had to block Campbell's effort at point blank range before turning Brett Ormerod's follow-up around the post. Newcastle's response was swift and wingers Wayne Routledge and Jonas Gutierrez took up the gauntlet, but it was defender Mike Williamson who came closest to giving them the lead. He met Barton's 25th-minute free-kick with a looping header which evaded Gilks' dive, but came back off the post. Gilks did intervene, however, seven minutes later when he won a one-one-on duel with Nolan after the midfielder had run on to Carroll's flick-on. But just as it looked as though the home side were ready to reply they were caught by a sucker punch on the stroke of half-time. They looked to have enough men back to cover Luke Varney's surge into the box, but Alan Smith's challenge was untidy and when the midfielder went down, the referee pointed to the spot. Adam beat Harper with the minimum of fuss and then unveiled a T-shirt bearing the message "4 Parky". Blackpool started the second half in positive mood, but were almost caught within six minutes when Nolan helped the ball on for Carroll. The striker attempted to round Gilks, but the keeper managed to grab the ball in the nick of time to deny him. Holloway's men were gradually retreating as the home side started to mount a concerted onslaught. But for all their possession, Newcastle were able to create little in the way of clear-cut chances with Carroll, Fabricio Coloccini and Williamson all coming close to meeting Barton's 59th-minute free-kick, but not close enough. Gilks had to come to the rescue three minutes later when Barton muscled his way into the box and looked certain to score until the keeper threw out a hand and Nolan saw a 68th-minute volley partially blocked. Hughton handed a debut to France international Hatem Ben Arfa in place of Jonas. Time was running out fast and the tension grew as Lovenkrands fired straight at Gilks, who then collected Carroll's looping header before seeing Jose Enrique shoot wildly over after cutting into the box. Gilks preserved his side's lead once again with 12 minutes remaining when, after Carroll had played Lovenkrands through, he got down well to palm away his firm drive. However, he saved the best for last when he blocked Carroll's goal-bound shot with his foot two minutes from time. Newcastle's despair was complete at the death when, as they pushed men forward, they were caught on the break as Adam found Campbell and he fired unerringly across Harper and into the bottom corner.
