Very good news today for manager Joe Kinnear and Newcastle fans in that Danny Guthrie will be fit for tomorrow’s home game against West Ham United.
Danny Guthrie – fit to face West Ham tomorrow – great!
The 21-year-old midfielder, signed from Liverpool in the summer and who is quietly making a name for himself on Tyneside, had been rated doubtful with the flu bug, to face West Ham and missed training earlier in the week.
But good news today as Guthrie told the official Newcastle web site today that he is fit for tomorrow’s game, and is all ready to take on the Londoners tomorrow:
“I’m fine and looking forward to the game,” “We need to get back to winning ways and this is a great chance to do so.”
“We were happy with the draw at Hull and also the clean sheet and this is a chance to build on that.”
With Nicky Butt suspended it was important to have Danny fir for tomorrow, and he will likely partner Geremi in central midfield for the game tomorrow.
It’s an important game (isn’t every game important these days), and we need to take all 3 points off the Hammers, who are 3 points ahead of us in the league and a win will just take us above them in the league by 5:00 pm tomorrow afternoon.
A one goal win will give us the same points and goal difference as the Hammers, but we will have scored more goals than them.
Sounds good to us.
