The Magpies ended a run of eight successive league defeats with a 1-1 home draw against West Brom last Saturday but remain just two points clear of the drop zone.
Despite the pessimism which is threatening to engulf the club, Newcastle’s fate remains in their own hands and Anita is confident the team can secure the points they need to stay up in the final two games against QPR and West Ham.
“It’s important to put the past behind us and move on,” Anita told The Journal. “We can’t keep constantly looking back and talking about things that have happened now.
“The game against West Brom provided a bit of a bright side to what has been a difficult few weeks.
“It gave us something to build on, and we just have to look to the future now and not get too caught up with what has happened before. We need to keep going because we are still not where we want to be.
“It was nice to be able to draw a line under a few things at the weekend and move on. We stopped the losing run with a point, and that was very important.
“The spirit in the team was never a problem, but it should be even better now as we look forward to the final two matches against QPR and West Ham.
“We need to show the same fighting mentality in those games that we did against West Brom. If we do that, we will be okay.”
