Loic Remy opened his Newcastle United account when the Magpies faced Hull in September but was still on the losing side. Now he wants revenge on Saturday

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."
