West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan is confident that Liverpool loanee Andy Carroll will receive a good welcome from Newcastle fans.

England forward Carroll received a mixed response from the Newcastle fans on his return for Liverpool last season but Nolan suspects he is still held in high regard in the north east.

“That is his town, that is his football club - you’re playing in your home town and all of his mates are going to be in the crowd,” Nolan said.

“For 90 minutes they might boo him but he goes up to Newcastle every other week and they are nice and all go up to have a photo.

“I’m sure on Sunday we will get a bit of stick but after the game the respect will be there.”
