Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin has said that his performance against Watford on Saturday was “probably” one of the worst he has given for the club.
The American international endured a torrid time against the Hornets at St James’ Park, the visitors capitalising on his defensive lapses to build down their left and score twice in the 3-0 defeat for the Magpies.
To compound the right back’s disappointing day, he was faced with the ignominy of scoring an own goal, seeing a cross deflect off his leg and past goalkeeper Rob Elliot.
However, he was not afraid to stand up and take responsibility for his sub-par display, and insists that he and the rest of his team mates will be looking to make amends when they take on West Brom on Tuesday.
When asked if it was one of the worst days he had suffered playing for Newcastle, he told the Chronicle: “It’s probably up there.
“We are just trying to stay positive. It’s very hard to after a performance like that, but it’s what you have to do.
“I am not going to walk out of here with a smile on my face. As a player, if you win ten in a row and you lose one, or you lose ten in a row, you are still going to be angry when you lose.
“We need to bounce back on Tuesday.”
Saturday’s defeat saw them slip into 13th place in the top flight table, just four points off of West Ham who are sitting in 18th and in the relegation zone.
The will travel to the Hawthorns on Tuesday to take on a currently managerless West Brom side, although caretaker boss Gary Megson did guide his players to a 1-1 draw with high flying Tottenham over the weekend.
