Newcastle striker Peter Lovenkrands has tonight dedicated his goal against West Brom to his late father, who died last Friday.
Peter Lovenkrands – dedicates his goal to his late father
Lovenkrands scored Newcastle’s equalizer after 55 minutes with Newcastle twice coming from behind against a determined and good looking WBA side, for whom Dorrans was outstanding.
It was a bit of a surprise when Peter wanted to play, and started the game, after scoring a terrific hat-trick last Wednesday, in the 3rd round FA Cup replay against Plymouth Argyle.
The Danish International, was not surprisingly, extremely emotional after he scored, pointing to the heavens, and got a terrific ovation after he scored from the warm Geordie crowd.
After the game Peter said the goal was for his father and he told Sky Sports:
“It was a difficult decision to play, but one that I wanted to make for my father who was a big football fan,”
“I’d like to dedicate that goal to him.”
It is the mark of the man that he played tonight and scored – well done Peter – we’re proud of you – and we’re sure your Dad is too.
