Shearer urges lads to build on Chelsea platform

Despite fleeting appearances on MOTD, Alan Shearer has tended to keep his nose out of NUFC business. However given the immense nature of not conceding at Stamford Bridge, he has called for JFK`s troops to take maximum advantage and get on some sort of run of form as the relegation battle starts to hot up. Shearer said:

'It was a terrific result. When you look at the way they defended against Fulham and Wigan, and the mistakes they made, and for them to go there and put in as polished performance as they did, it shows it can be done. You look at the teams that have gone there this season and conceded goals, and for Newcastle not to concede is a great effort, not only by the defence, but the whole team was very good defensively.

We were never going to score in the game, but why should we go there and try and entertain rather than going there to try and get a point? If they can carry that forward, they'll stay clear of any trouble whatsoever.

What seems a common theme is at the bottom half of the league, you get two good results, then the next two or three aren't so good. Middlesbrough have proved that. They had a couple of good results and were in eighth, I think, before Saturday's game, and they were beaten at home (3-1 by Bolton Wanderers). The pressure's on them again to get a result at home against Newcastle. Everyone's doing that - everyone's beating each other.

It's important that after such a good result, they build on that. It's strange, and I can't remember one like it. One win takes you to mid-table, and one defeat puts you in the bottom three. It keeps it interesting. It's great for football that you see Villa going to Arsenal and winning 2-0.

Newcastle have had a great result now, and it's important that they now go on an get one at Middlesbrough, and if they can do then they have a game against Stoke. Two good results now will lift us into the top half. Everyone's inconsistent. That's the common theme.'
