Danny Guthrie really wanted to play in the game against Middlesbrough, and it must have shown in practice last week, as Alan Sherarer started Danny Guthrie out wide right in midfield, in a 4-4-2 formation.
Danny Guthrie – had good game and some great corners on Monday night
And Danny put in some great crosses on Monday night, and of course found Steven Taylor with a great corner after just 9 minutes that leveled the scores, and Steven almost broke the net.
Danny is a very good player in the making, and we think Alan will start Guthrie again on Saturday, because not only is he in good form, but the lad is really up for the fight.
As as we pointed out earlier today, we are still perilously close to the drop and are really joint 3rd bottom right now. And that’s after winning on Monday night
Danny Guthrie is rightly refusing to get carried away by just one win, which by the way was the first home win since we beat Tottenham 2-1 in December, with a last minute goal from Damien Duff.
Danny talked about the upcoming and vital Fulham game:
“We have to go out and perform against a good Fulham side,” “This win over Middlesbrough will mean nothing if we don’t get something – we probably need to win again.”
“We proved that we can do it under pressure (against Middlesbrough) so we’ll be confident going into the game on Saturday.”
“It wasn’t nice as all the teams around us played at the weekend and you’re hoping they lose, but now it’s in our hands, we control our own destiny so we have to go out against Fulham and win again.”
We had quite a few heroes on Monday night in the side with Martins, Lovenkrands, Taylor and Viduka just four of them, and we want to see even more heroes on Saturday night – we must get that win.
Howay The Lads!!
