Newcastle United player Kieron Dyer is aiming for a positive result when the Magpies head to Fulham this weekend. Dyer played in plenty of the games during United’s woeful run of thirty matches without a win in London, but their record in the capital since, and particularly this season, has been a world away from the long fruitless trips endured over a four-year period.

Only Chelsea have gotten the better of Glenn Roeder’s side in the capital this term. Dyer believes that London is no longer the daunting place it used to be for Newcastle United.
“We had a great win against Tottenham the last time we were in the capital and, hopefully, we can build on that,” said Dyer. “We beat West Ham, drew with Arsenal and beat Spurs, and also beat Watford in the Carling Cup, so we go there full of confidence. It is a winnable game and we are on a bit of a roll after beating Aston Villa.”
Dyer has netted five goals in fifteen games this season and played an important for the Magpies of late. A rare headed effort against Villa in midweek took his overall Toon career tally to thirty-five goals in a black-and-white shirt, and the suggestion is that Dyer can get a lot more if he keeps up his good form. Dyer has missed a large number of games during his time a the club with injury problems but he believes all that is behind him now.
“I think I’ve played more games in 2007 than I did in the whole of last season,” he said. “Things are looking up and long may it continue. I think the game I felt the worst in was obviously the Birmingham game in the FA Cup. At Tottenham we were brilliant and then against Birmingham it was like hitting a brick wall. Straight after the Birmingham game we had West Ham, but we’ve had a 10-day break which has done me the world of good. I feel fine again now.” Click here for more…
