Match Preview

Taylor targets regular spot Newcastle defender Steven Taylor has warned Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson he has no intention of sitting on the bench next season. The Argentinian and the former Portsmouth man have spent much of the season together at the heart of the Magpies defence and have performed admirably in tandem with full-backs Danny Simpson and Jose Enrique to give Alan Pardew's side a firm foundation. Taylor has been a frustrated bystander for much of the campaign, sitting out the opening months as he recovered from a shoulder problem and then finding himself sidelined by a hamstring injury in January. However, he has made an eye-catching return to the starting line-up in the wake of Williamson's broken arm in the last two games, in which he has served up reminders of both his defensive resilience and the threat he poses in the opposition penalty area with goals against Birmingham and Chelsea. Having re-established himself in the team ahead of the final-day clash with West Brom, the Greenwich-born, Geordie-bred defender is in no mood to step aside. Asked how determined he is to hang onto the shirt, 25-year-old Taylor said: "Too right, that's what I want. "I have always had competition since I was a 16-year-old lad coming into the reserves. "I remember seeing there were seven centre-halves in front of me at the time. I got past all of them and that's where I want to be right now. "The manager makes the decisions and it is up to him what he does. At the end of the day, myself, Coloccini and Williamson are options for him." Taylor emerged from the ranks at St James' Park and forced his way into the senior picture as a teenager, making his debut under former boss Sir Bobby Robson as a substitute in a UEFA Cup victory over Real Mallorca in March 2004. But it was during 2006-07 that he became a regular and produced the kind of displays which took him into the England Under-21s and eventually saw him leading his country into battle. However, injuries have proved something of an occupational hazard for Taylor in recent seasons with shoulder dislocations in particular - as well as a difference of opinion with then team-mate Andy Carroll - costing him too much football for his own liking. In that respect, he is delighted to be back fit and raring to go, and he is grateful to manager Alan Pardew for how he has handled his situation. He said: "It's all about training every day and just waiting for your chance, more than anything. "The gaffer didn't rush me back. He has done really well for me, but just to get my chance is great now." West Brom head coach Roy Hodgson wants his team to end the season as the Midlands' top-ranked club. The Baggies have not finished above all their Midlands rivals for 32 years but lead the way heading into the final round of the Barclays Premier League fixtures. Albion are 11th and could finish as high as eighth if results go in their favour, a remarkable position for a team in relegation trouble when Hodgson took over in February. Hodgson told the club's website, www.wba.co.uk: "We are less motivated by the thought that the players or the club, in terms of bonuses, might earn a little more money. "We are motivated more by the fact we can finish in the highest possible league position and, in particular, finish above our midland rivals and be top dog in the Midlands for the first time in many years." Aston Villa, who are just a point behind, are the only club from the region who can now overtake them. But Hodgson, whose side travel to Newcastle, does not believe he can expect a favour from Villa's opponents, his former club Liverpool. He added: "I think we need a result because Aston Villa are perfectly capable of getting a result in their home game. We can't rely on them losing. "If they were to take a point and we lose they would pip us on goal difference, which would be disappointing. "It is important we go up to Newcastle and try to get the win we need which would mean we are untouchable in our position. "That is what we are trying for."

Match Report

Tchoyi hat-trick stuns Magpies Somen Tchoyi claimed a superb hat-trick as West Brom staged a stunning comeback to snatch a point in a 3-3 draw at Newcastle. The Magpies led 3-0 with 47 minutes gone and looked to be cruising to victory with Steven Taylor's 16th-minute strike, a second from Peter Lovenkrands and a Jonas Olsson own goal looking to have secured a victory. But Tchoyi reduced the deficit with a 62nd-minute strike and when he added a second 10 minutes later, nerves were jangling on Tyneside. However, the Cameroon international midfielder was not done and with seconds of normal time remaining he powered home a diving header to deny the Magpies a top-10 finish in front of a crowd of 51,678. Perhaps even more disappointingly, it meant that the Magpies finished below arch-rivals Sunderland, whose victory at relegated West Ham lifted them into 10th place, two positions better off. It is a measure of how well both Newcastle and West Brom have coped with their return to the top flight that they headed into the final game of the season already safe and bidding for a place in the top half of the table, something few outside their respective dressing rooms would have predicted before a ball was kicked. But while there was nothing crucial at stake, both set about the task of bringing successful campaigns to a winning conclusion, and it was the Magpies who took the initiative during a first 45 minutes which grew in intensity the longer it went on. In a lively start, Scott Carson had to clutch a third-minute Shane Ferguson drive to his chest and opposite number Tim Krul was relieved to find Steven Taylor in the right place at the right time four minutes later to intercept Marc-Antoine Fortune's shot on the line after Jose Enrique had gifted possession to Tchoyi. But as the half wore on, it was the home side which started to press on a more sustained basis, and they took the lead with 16 minutes gone. The Baggies made a mess of dealing with Ryan Taylor's inswinging corner and when Lovenkrands helped the ball back into the six-yard box, Steven Taylor turned Youssouf Mulumbu to fire home from close range. Newcastle gradually increased the tempo and after Danny Guthrie had fired just over from distance and Steven Taylor had headed wide, they went further ahead six minutes before the break with a helping hand from Carson. Lovenkrands ran on to Ameobi's header and attempted to lift the ball over the keeper, who got a glove to it and then caught it as it dropped behind him, but his frantic efforts to persuade the officials that it had not crossed the line fell on deaf ears. The visitors continued to enjoy their fair share of possession, but it was simply not their day in the first half. Three minutes before the break Fortune's goal-bound effort was again blocked on the line by Steven Taylor, whose clearance hit Krul and ran to safety. Carson had to beat away another Guthrie piledriver seconds later as an entertaining half drew to a close with the Magpies firmly in control. They tightened their stranglehold within two minutes of the restart with the visitors once again contributing to their own downfall. Jose Enrique's cross towards the near post fell nicely for Olsson to clear, but he sliced the ball past the helpless Carson and into his own net to extend Newcastle's lead to 3-0. The visitors continued to battle gamely for a way back into the match, but the Magpies were enjoying themselves as they stroked the ball around comfortably. However, West Brom did break their duck with 62 minutes gone when Tchoyi beat the offside trap to run on to a ball over the top and calmly slide his shot past Krul. Alarm bells were ringing in the Geordie ranks 10 minutes later when Tchoyi stepped inside Fabricio Coloccini and blasted home his side's second to make for a tense final few minutes. The rescue mission was complete in the final minute of normal time when Olsson crossed from the left for Tchoyi to snatch a point with a diving header. end
