TIM Krul says Newcastle United don’t fear anyone at St James’s Park.
The Holland international will be between the posts for tomorrow’s home game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Gareth Bale and Luka Modric are among the attack-minded players in Harry Redknapp’s sixth-placed side, who beat north London rivals Arsenal in their last Premier League outing.
But Krul, 23, insists he and his team-mates don’t fear Spurs – or any other team – at St James’s Park, where they are unbeaten in seven games.
The Tottenham game is followed by another home fixture – Wigan Athletic visit Tyneside on October 22 – and Krul’s looking to fourth-placed Newcastle to consolidate, or even improve, their lofty position in the league ahead of a tough-looking visit to Stoke City at the end of the month.
“We’ve got two great home games now,” Krul told SportMail. “Hopefully, we can make St James’s Park our fortress, and climb up the table again.
“We don’t fear any team, and that’s what we’re showing on the pitch.
“Tottenham are a good team, but we go out to win every game. It’s just amazing, and we can be very proud of the 15 points we have already.
“There’s a lot of confidence in the dressing room, but we’re not getting carried away. We work hard for each other all over the pitch, and we showed that again (at Molineux).
“We can scruff three points out, and we can play teams off the park.”
