ALAN Pardew’s hopeful Newcastle United can give their fans more to cheer about on their travels this season - and banish memories of last term’s awayday disappointments.
Newcastle recorded their third Premier League away win of the season yesterday.
Loic Remy’s goal gave United a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
The team’s fortunes away from St James’s Park after in sharp contrast to Newcastle’s form up and down the country last season.
United won just two times on their travels.
But this campaign Newcastle set the tone with victories at Aston Villa and Cardiff City.
And manager Pardew feels the “desire and spirit” in evidence on the pitch at White Hart Lane bodes well for the coming weeks and months.
“It was a side to us that we’ll need if we’re going to win more games away from home,” Pardew said.
“It was our third win away. We didn’t have that many last year. We’ve got that already.
“We’ve shown that desire and spirit in those three games.
“Cardiff, Aston Villa and Tottenham - away games aren’t easy to win in the Premier League.
“We’ve had to scrap in all three of them, and we had a little bit of luck too (against Tottenham).”
After the international break ninth-placed United face a home double-header against Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.
