Hart feeling title vibe
Updated Tuesday, 1st May 2012
Joe Hart is determined to "ride the wave" all the way to Premier League title glory.
The Manchester City keeper was a virtual spectator as the Blues claimed a 1-0 win over Manchester United to regain top spot in the Premier League table with only two games remaining. Like his manager Roberto Mancini, Hart is determined not to look too far ahead, but he can feel the momentum is with City.
"We deserve to be in the position we are in - we are a good team, with good players and good fans and we are going places," he said. "Hopefully we can do it this year. You have to ride on that wave and enjoy it. There is no point in being robots. You have to feel that vibe and we felt the fans."
Victory at Newcastle on Sunday, followed by a home win over QPR on the final day of the season will be enough for City to claim their first championship since 1968, unless United record improbably high wins over Swansea and Sunderland.
Hart is keen to point out that a meeting with Newcastle, at the Sports Direct Arena, is not something to be taken lightly.
"We were pleased to win but we have moved on," said Hart.
"It's all about Newcastle now, which is pretty similar to what happened earlier in the season when we won at United - it was a great feeling but then we had the next game.
"It's all very well winning one game. But you can't just win one game if you want to do well. You need to win every one.
"Now we go to Newcastle to face a very tough side in a tough stadium, hoping we can get a good result."
