Chris Hughton dismisses Aston Villa hangover fears
Chris Hughton is confident there will be no hangover as his players run out against Aston Villa for the first time since they condemned Newcastle to relegation.
The team Hughton sends out against the managerless midlanders at St James' Park tomorrow will include several survivors from the 1-0 defeat at Villa Park on May 24 last year which consigned the Magpies to a season in the Championship.
Hughton said: “I don't think it has any relevance to the game at all. It's something that is very much in the past.”
