Steven Taylor, Guthrie and Harewood All Start


nufc-crestpeterborough

Chris Hughton makes three changes to the side which won at Sheffield United on Monday night.

As expected Steven Taylor returns for Tamas Kadar, Danny Guthrie comes in to give some creativity in midfield in place of Nicky Butt, and Marlon Harewood will get his big chance in front of the Newcastle fans this afternoon.

It looks like we are playing 4-4-2 with both Andy Carroll and Marlon Harewood up front – and that’s good.

Taylor is back from a three-week hamstring injury, and Ryan Taylor, surprisingly gives way to give Danny Guthrie a chance.

Of course this team selection will be based on how the lads have looked in training, and it looks a creative side ready to score some goals – and that’s good.

The subs bench is particularly strong – Tim Krul, Nicky Butt, Ryan Taylor, Geremi, Nile Ranger, Tamas Kadar and Peter Lovenkrands – so Chris can change the game if he needs to in the second half.

We would like to see Peter Lovenkrands coming through more than he’s shown so far this season, but Ranger, Lovenkrands and Taylor (R) are 3 players who can score goals.

Alan Smith wears the captain’s armband again because Butt is on the bench.

TEAMS

Newcastle United: Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini, Jose Enrique, Danny Guthrie, Alan Smith (c), Kevin Nolan, Jonas Gutierrez, Marlon Harewood, Andy Carroll

Peterborough: Joe Lewis, Charlie Lee, Tommy Rowe, Craig Morgan, Ryan Bennett, Chris Whelpdale, Dean Keates, Toumani Diagouraga, Danny Rose, George Boyd, Craig Mackail-Smith
Subs: Ben Amos, Russell Martin, Gabriel Zakuani, Lee Frecklington, Paul Coutts, Aaron McLean, Shaun Batt

    Looking for a feed too. Still a little unsure about Harewood. His game against Donny Rovers was shocking

    @Steve R: Check about five minutes before KO. JustinTV usually has some audio streams so have a deek around there.

    We should be playing 4-4-2 Diamond seeing as we’ve been fairly successful with that in the past – with the same midfield iirc. I don’t see why Hare is up with Carroll, though – we need some pace up there.

    I wonder how McLoven is doing with his family issues, though…

    Does anyone knows if there’s a chance to have a video stream or will it most certainly be only audio?

    Perhaps Hughtons plan is to fool them with Harewood and then stun them with Ranger?

    Would’ve preferred R. Taylor in the team rather than Guthrie. Let’s see what Harewood can do today; this is a big chance for him. Glad Hughton does not feel obliged to play Butt when Smith-Nolan is our best CM pairing.

    I think Jonas will get his first goal for us today!

    Subs should be Ranger for Harewood at some point, and R. Taylor for Guthrie at some point.

    Chris Houghton sees the players in training everyday, so i guess we’ll have to trust him.

    unless we lose of course 😉

    Lads there aren’t any video links – no recording this game at all.

    Audio is as good as we’re going to get.

    They’re coming out onto the pitch now.

    I think CH is starting with Harewood to see whether he is worth keeping, thats the only explanation i can come up with
