The news today from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle is that JosÃ© Enrique has not been 100% fit since the Spaniard came off with a calf injury in the FA Cup defeat at Arsenal on January 26.
Jose Enrique, is looking for start tomorrow
But apparently Jose is fit now and is looking to Kevin Keegan for a place at left back in the side tomorrow. Charles Nâ€™Zogbia of course was responsible for Wayne Rooneyâ€™s first goal last Saturday against Manchester United when he inexplicably went to sleep at the far post.
Rooney had far too much space and put the ball home unchallenged. Whether that will be enough to convince Keegan to give our natural left back a start tomorrow – we donâ€™t know.
But if Enrique, who turned 22 last month, is fit he should play, because when he has played this season heâ€™s looked the part. Jose has only appeared 12 times for the Magpies so far this season and it will be an important position against Blackburn, because David Bentley is likely to be on the right wing.
David will be a challenge for whomever starts at left back tomorrow. We hope itâ€™s Jose and we think Charles can fit in as an attacking central midfielder tomorrow, since we need to attack Blackburn from the start, if we are to get all 3 points, which we so badly need.
