Danny Guthrie has admitted today that he was extremely upset when he missed the penalty on Wednesday night – so were most Newcastle fans! 🙁
Danny Guthrie – in happier times
The young midfielder will be hoping to take all his frustrations out on Bristol City tomorrow afternoon.
Guthrie admits his penalty miss came just a week after he had himself sent off against Peterborough United, which contributed to Newcastle’s Carling Cup exit.
Danny said today:
“My head was all over the place when I missed it.” “You just have to get it out of your system as quickly as possible – and for me that’s helping beat Bristol.”
“”I’m trying to forget about it as quickly as I can – the only way I can do that is by working as hard as I can for the team.” “Hopefully I can get a bit of luck now!”
“The last couple of weeks have been up and then down.” “I’d scored a couple in successive home games and set a couple up.”
“Then I got sent off at Peterborough – which was stupid.” “Then I missed the pen.”
“I just have to stay strong and I will be looking to bounce back, this can make me stronger.”
We have to admit we are big fans of young Danny, and it seems a classic case of the 22 year-old learning his trade and maturing on the field at the same time.
We have a feeling we may get an excellent performance from Guthrie tomorrow to make up for his below par outing on Wednesday night against QPR.
But if we get another penalty tomorrow afternoon against Bristol City, we MUST score from it.
