We rode our luck at times, but it was a fighting performance that was needed, Hughton told Sky Sports. For all of Newcastle's play around the box and shots that they had they did not create the real clear chance.
They've stuck by the manager because he has done a good job, said Hughton. He has got promotion for them and finished 10th in the Premier League. Newcastle supporters appreciate the wonderful job Rafa has done there. It has been a difficult start for them but they will turn it around.
