Testing times for Magpies - McClaren
- From the section Football
Newcastle United boss Steve McClaren admits the "testing times have come early" to his tenure at St James' Park, but insists he has the patience and experience to turn things around.
The Magpies have endured a difficult start to the season picking up just two points from their first six Premier League games.
They host Championship club Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup third round - a tie the former England boss is calling "a massive game".
