Steve McClaren has ordered his players into training tomorrow morning in the wake of Newcastle United's 5-1 defeat at Selhurst Park.

The embarrassing result left the club second-bottom of the Premier League with 14 games played.

After the match, head coach McClaren admitted his team was in a "relegation battle".

And he went on to reveal that he had told his players to report to the club's training ground.

McClaren said: "The players will be back to work tomorrow morning.

"That was not what I want to see from my football team.

"The players know that. The only thing to do is get back to work tomorrow. We have to do the right things."
