Loic Remy


By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Revenge is on Loic Remy's mind as Newcastle take on Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

The striker scored twice against the Tigers in September - his first two goals for the Club following his loan move from Queens Park Rangers - but the Magpies still lost 3-2 on a disappointing afternoon at St. James' Park.

He diverted Papiss Cisse's mis-hit shot early on then, after Robbie Brady had equalised for the visitors, curled home a second just before half time.

But Ahmed Elmohamady put Steve Bruce's side level once more before Sone Aluko gave Hull all three points with a wonderful late volley.

Remy's stoppage time strike against Aston Villa on Sunday was his 12th of the season and gave Newcastle a first win in five matches.

And how he's hoping to make it back-to-back victories this weekend - and make amends for that setback in September.

"I remember that game at home," the French striker told nufcTV.

"It was a good game for me in terms of goals, but I remember we lost that game so for me it's going to be revenge to try to win this game.

"Now we have a little bit more confidence.

"The team did very well (against Aston Villa) so we have to do the same game after game and Hull City is going to be a big test for us."
