Cheick Tiote

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Cheick Tiote has urged United fans to fill St. James' Park between now and the end of the season, admitting a packed-out stadium will make the players' job "easy".

Earlier this month Newcastle launched a fantastic offer for the final six Premier League home games of the 2012/13 campaign, where supporters pay for five matches and get a seat for the Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland absolutely free.

The Six Game Package kicks off this Sunday against Southampton and thousands of Geordies have already signed up to the deal, which starts at just £110 for adults and £55 for juniors

There is only a couple of days left to get involved, and midfield enforcer Tiote told just how important more than 50,000 home fans can be for the Magpies' fortunes.

"We love playing at home and even more so when St. James' Park is full," he said.

"For the foreign players like me, we weren't used to it before we came here but the noise is amazing and we love it. We really enjoy playing at home.

"When the fans come and sing and make noise it is good for us.

"We know we have to play well and win every game at home, but if they fill the stadium every time then winning games is easy for us.
