JOHN Carver says Newcastle United must “stop the rot” this weekend as they face a “huge” game at Leicester City.
Leicester, who sit fourth-bottom, are now just four points behind Newcastle after a run of four wins in five games.
Newcastle, meanwhile, have lost their last seven, and Carver has described Saturday’s game as the biggest of the weekend.
He said: “Saturday is a tough game. Leicester are very well-organised, very strong and are a big, physical team.
“It’s the biggest game of the weekend, and huge for both sides. We need to stop this rot and get a result.”
