Karl Darlow believes Newcastle United’s players have the mental strength needed for the run-in.
Rafa Benitez’s side, beaten at home last weekend by Fulham, lead the Championship by goal difference ahead of this afternoon’s game against Birmingham City at St Andrew’s.
Goalkeeper Darlow said: “Mentally, we’ve been very strong throughout the season.
“We’ve picked up points throughout the whole campaign, and we’ve got to continue that and keep on doing what we have been doing.
“That Fulham game was a one-off. We haven’t played that poorly I don’t think this season.”
