Santon targeting Reading win

18 January 2013 14:25

Newcastle full-back Davide Santon has warned his team-mates they 'cannot lose' when they face Reading at St James' Park on Saturday.

After finishing fifth last season - and remaining in the chase for Champions League qualification until the last few weeks of the campaign - Alan Pardew's side have suffered a dramatic downturn in form, and sit just three points off the relegation zone.

Santon, 22, has featured in all of Newcastle's league games this season and believes a morale-boosting win over fellow relegation strugglers Reading could kick-start his team's season.

"(The game against Reading) is so important," Santon told the club's official website.

"Reading at home? We cannot lose, we cannot draw, we just have to win.

"After we hopefully win that game, that is where our season starts. We still have a lot of games left where we can pick up good results. Our minds have to be only on win, win, win, and nothing else."

A loss for Newcastle could see them end the weekend inside the relegation zone, with games against Chelsea and Tottenham on the horizon.
