The Villans have taken 17 points away from home this term and visit the struggling Magpies today, and the Scot wants to see his side inflict more misery on Alan Pardew's team at St James' Park.
He told Sky Sports News: "I think the away form has been very good. The points haul we've got is very tough [to get] and if we can get the home form rectified then it'll be easier.
"The system is the same as what we did at Anfield [against Liverpool] and it worked really well there. This is another tough place to come.
"The crowd play their part here so if we can get them grumbling a bit then I think we can get something."
