Willock, on-loan from Arsenal, is backing Newcastle’s battling spirit to ease them away from Premier League trouble after ending his debut for the club with a remarkable victory.
Asked about the team spirit which saw Newcastle through, Willock told NUFC TV: “To be honest with you, I haven’t had that in a long time, being here with the boys, and it’s just going to bring us closer and the next game, we’re just going to fight for each other even more.
“We want to keep on pushing on from this and another three points next week.
“We were all fighting together – that’s the mentality of the team. From the first day I got here, I could see it was a very close-knit group and they wanted to fight for each other, and I’m happy it showed today.”
