Danny Guthrie had another good game for Newcastle yesterday, and his penalty in the 88th minute was his second goal in three games for the youngster.
Danny Guthrie – man of the match yesterday?
After the game Danny gave an interview to nufcTV, and this is what the 21 year old had to say:
“Obviously the results a blow and we don’t know how bad Habib is yet, and hopefully it’s not too bad – it’s another blow today but we could have snatched something at the end.”
“It was a scrappy game and we always knew it would be a tough physical game coming here and when you go 2-0 down with 10 men it was always going to be uphill struggle.” “But we got back in the game and could have got something in the end.”
“It was disappointing but you are always going to give free kicks away unfortunately and the lad still had to do a lot from where he was.”
We’re not too happy about the second goal because we thought a foul should have been given outside the box, and we don’t think it was a red card either, but that happens but we can put things right tomorrow.”
“We got back in the game and maybe on another day we could have got something out of it. We still kept going and could have got something out of the game in the end.”
And Danny was asked about Damien Duff’s chance in injury time, when he had a great opportunity to get Newcastle a point but blazed the ball over, after his first touch was disappointing.
“When I saw Duff take the ball I thought he would just smash it in, but it wasn’t to be, but you always fancy the Duffer.”
“Our fans are unbelievable and it’s a long trip for them when you don’t get anything out of it and give them some cheer.”
“It’s a bigger game now against Liverpool, because we do need to get something being at home especially being at home but we‘ve done well against the big teams this year,”
“It’s always a bit of added spice playing against a former team but I’m not going to get too excited about the game – I’ll just try to treat it as a normal game.”
