With promotion being job one this season, Chris Hughton will make some changes for Saturday’s 4th round FA Cup tie at the Hawthorns.
Chris Hughton – will make changes
Chris told Newcastle United TV today:
“I will make changes but I’m yet to pick my team,”
“We’ve got a couple of knocks and bruises from Monday night as you’d expect but nothing serious to worry about.”
“It’s a tight squad here so it will certainly be a very good group of players I take to West Brom.”
“I will, though, assess what players are available and who I want to rest over the next couple of days before deciding on my team.”
We would expect Chris to start Krul, Kadar and even Ranger for Saturday’s game.
If we were honest we’re not too bothered about Saturday’s game, although a win would be good, but we must try to finish the tie on Saturday, one of the last things we want is a replay.
Our next league game is next Wednesday night, against Crystal Palace at home, followed by an away game at Leicester on Saturday, as the games start to come thick and fast.
