Mohammed Diame has criticised Newcastle’s poor home record after they lost 2-1 to Wolves at St James’ Park on Sunday.
A late Matt Doherty header secured all three points for the visitors with Rafa Benitez’s side having now lost seven of their past nine home fixtures.
The result leaves Newcastle in 15th in the Premier League table, and Diame insists their home record must change if they are to avoid a relegation battle this season.
“It was a really bad result.’’ Diame told reporters after the game.
“We can say everything about how we fought, we showed good attitude but we lost the points, especially at home that is disappointing.
“We had a good point against Everton last Wednesday and Wolves was a good opportunity for us with all the results from Saturday, now we are disappointed not to have done our bit to get the result we wanted.
“When you lose there is always something to blame. I know a lot of people will say we have worked hard, gave a lot but not everything because we lost and we are left disappointed again.
“At home all the bottom teams we face we need to take the three points. When you play away it is different but we should be looking to beat teams in the bottom half when we are at home.
“I don’t know what to say about the run (seven home defeats from nine). It’s bad. We know that. We need points and we need to change that as soon as possible.”
