Jonas Gutierrez: Hoping to bounce back against Sunderland next weekend
Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez is determined to make up for Saturday's collapse against Wolves in next weekend's Tyne-Wear derby.
The 28-year-old Argentinian saw his side squander a 2-0 lead over the struggling Midlanders to emerge with only a point when three were there for the taking.
However, the Magpies will have little time to reflect on a disappointing afternoon as they begin preparations for next Sunday's clash with Sunderland on Tyneside.
Even with Alan Pardew's men in sixth place in the Premier League table, the completion of a double over their arch-rivals would go much of the way to making the season for their fans, and provide the perfect antidote to a wasteful afternoon.
Gutierrez said: "We lost two points, so we were upset about the result. But now we have to focus on the next game.
"Of course that's a game that stands out. It's something completely different compared to any other game in the Premier League.
"We know what the fans expect from this game - they don't care if you play well, just about the three points.
"We are at home, so we have to take the three points because yesterday, we lost two, so we have to get the win next week."
Gutierrez netted Newcastle's second against Wolves after January signing Papiss Cisse bagged the opener early on.
The Argentinian, whose goal was his third against the Midlanders, was able to take little consolation from it.
He said: "I don't score too many and I have three against Wolves. But after this one, I am not happy at all because we didn't get the three points."
