After just completing a piece on Andy Carroll, and saying that we’ll need his goals tonight, news from the official site that Andy will be rested at Peterborough.
Nile Ranger – 18 year-old striker will start tonight
Thankfully there’s nothing wrong with Andy in terms of injuries, and we have to think Chris Hughton will now give a full outing to Nile Ranger, and maybe give a run-out at some stage to local lad Ryan Donaldson, too.
And we accept that fully, because some of our top players must be rested, and we need to have a fresh side that can do battle and take all 3 points at Ipswich on Saturday.
And the Championship is of course out very top priority this season, as we must maintain our challenge at the top of the league so we can get back to the PL at the very first attempt.
Nile will start this game and he needs a goal tonight, to keep his forward momentum going this season.
But in the last two games, when he’s come on, the tall Londoner has looked little short of awesome, so it will be good to see how he plays tonight.
If Chris plays a usual 4-5-1 then Nile will be the Lone Ranger up front.
We just had to get that one in, and Nile’s goal will obviously be to score tonight – excuse the pun. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
