Steve Harper says Newcastle will return to the Premier League this season. Steve Harper: “It’s vitally important to have the right sort of players in. “It is well documented that we have had our fair share of difficult characters in the past. “But everybody that has come in now seem to be good lads. “And that’s part of what the manager was looking for. “With the injuries we’ve picked up, it was important to get in proven players at this level. “That’s what we’ve done. “Mike Williamson has been excellent and he seems to be a really nice guy. “He looks the part for us. “He’s very positive in the air and he’s got two good feet. So far he’s taken up some good positions and he’s settled straight in. “Two clean sheets are testament to that. "Patrick Van Aanholt looks a very good player for the future – he came in and made one block and almost scored. “He will look even better on a good surface tomorrow night.”
