Danny Simpson rather surprisingly turned out at left back for Newcastle United on Saturday, as they were held by Bristol City at home 0-0.
Danny Simpson – played left back Saturday
The loan signing from Manchester United turned out at left-back in the absence of Jose Enrique, who had a very slight hamstring injury, but Danny has now played across the back four for the Magpies this season.
Enrique was ruled out on Friday, and Hughton seems to have had no hesitation in switching the 22-year-old to the left side of his defence.
And Simpson helped the Newcastle defense to their 7th clean sheet in 11 league games, in which they have conceded just 5 goals so far this season – not too bad at all.
And our defense could be the foundation on which we can build a promotion winning season – and lets’ not forget if we can get promoted this season, that would be just absolutely fantastic – unbelievable.
Chris said today:
“Jose was very much touch and go, but he had a fitness test and just missed out,” “I very much expect him to be fit for the next game.”
“Danny Simpson’s also been carrying a knock. I told him I was going to play him at left-back, and he was enthusiastic, and just delighted to be playing. Overall, he deputised very well.”
Danny seems to be a willing player in any position for the club, and he just wants to play during his time on Tyneside.
But it’s good that Danny has proved he is useful at left back, although one of our youngsters, 19 year-old Hungarian Tamas Kadar is also more than useful at left back, as well as center-back.
