After watching Newcastle slump to the bottom of the Premier League, assistant manager Jason Tindall insisted Eddie Howe’s rescue effort would never be a quick fix.
After testing positive for Covid-19, head coach Howe was unable to be in the dugout for his first game in command at St James’ Park, and saw the squad he inherited from Steve Bruce scrape to a 3-3 tie with promoted Brentford in an entertaining, but error-filled match.
Norwich’s win over Southampton meant that a point was not enough to maintain them in 19th position, and while they are only five points adrift of safety, their lack of wins in their first 12 games means they are in serious trouble.
However, Tindall said: “When we arrived at the football club, the team were where they were and since we’ve been here, we’ve just tried to implement our philosophy on the group of players as quickly and the best we can.
