Newcastle's United's young saviour Andy Carroll believes he could have sparked the revival needed to keep the Magpies in the Premier League.
Carroll's equaliser at Stoke secured a first point for interim manager Alan Shearer, and the 20-year-old hopes it will prove a turning point.
He told the Newcastle Chronicle: "We all believe we can get out of trouble, but we needed a break and I think this could be it.
"There are only six games left in the league, and with us being down towards the bottom of the table, we need every point we can get.
"We are now two points behind Sunderland but we are all confident we can get out of trouble and we've got another massive game against Spurs coming up."
