It looks like French left winger Fabrice Pancrate will get another chance at the Hawthorns tomorrow afternoon.
Fabrice Pancrate – after scoring wonder goal against Watford
Fabrice missed a sitter in the first round against Plymouth at Home Park, but he has already showed his immense skill with the terrific goal against Watford, when he rifled the ball in the net when surrounded by two defenders – a world-class goal.
Fabrice told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I hope I can get my second goal against West Brom.” “I’ve been waiting for it – it’s been a few games since that goal against Watford.”
“I know that in football chances will come and go, and I know that I will score it very soon.”
“But we’ll see what happens. If we win and I don’t score I’m happy, but to score in such a big game would be a massive boost.”
Pancrate, who has played for Sochaux and Paris St Germain, last appeared in the replay against Plymouth Argyle, and should get his chance tomorrow.
“West Brom are a good team but I think if we pick up where we left off against them, we will be OK.”
“I think they are a good team and maybe they can come up second to us in the league!” “I feel good and I hope that this can be a good match, not only for me but for the team.”
“We need to win this game in my opinion, and I want to be in the next round, no matter who it was against.” “For me, the cup is a competition that is really important.”
“If we can go far in it, it’s very good for everybody.”
It looks like Krul, Kadar, Pancrate and Ranger could all start for Newcastle tomorrow, but Chris Hughton will be taking this game seriously, as he would like to progress to the 5th round, and we need to preserve our unbeaten run too.
But Pancrate needs to impress at Newcastle before the end of the season, if he is to get an extension on his short-term contract, which runs through the end of this season at Newcastle.
But Peter Lovenkrands in in Denmark, on compassionate leave for the his late father, and the Evening Chronicle are reporting that he will not feature in the game at West Brom.
Peter needs to see to this personal loss, and he’s already made himself a hero with Newcastle’s fans, because of his brave performance against WBA on Monday night, when he scored the second equalizer to get Newcastle the vital point, they just about deserved.
