Good derby start is key - Harper

Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper believes a good start to Sunday's visit of Sunderland could be the perfect tonic for the beleaguered Magpies.The club are without a win in five games, since December's 2-1 victory against Tottenham but Harper, 33, sees the derby as a chance to stop the rot."We have to come out of the blocks on Sunday with 52,000 people roaring us on," he told BBC Radio Newcastle."Last we went 1-0 up early on and won so I hope we can do the same."
