Chris Hughton claims that the team’s focus was the key to Newcastle United’s win over Peterborough yesterday.

Cardiff lost away to derby rivals Swansea and West Brom managed to beat promotion hopefuls Leicester, which means a bit of a gap has opened up between the top 2 and the chasing back.

After the game, Hughton said:

We have got a totally focused group of players who, from minute one, saw an opportunity for us to stay on top of the division, and very much took that opportunity.

We have got used to getting on with the job. There are things we can’t affect, but I am very lucky that I have got a group of players who are focused on one thing, and that’s on staying where we are at the right end of the table with the ultimate aim of getting promotion.

We are focused enough and it certainly hasn’t taken anything away from the victory.” (more…)
