Two players we want to see starting in Newcastle’s now crucial game at Swansea on Saturday are Fabricio Coloccini and Alan Smith.
Coloccini – solid performer this season for the Magpies
Smith has been the epitome of the spirit that is Newcastle United this season, and it’s important the captain return at Swansea and help steady the Newcastle ship.
As far as we know Alan is fit and will start the match.
But there’s some good news today, and it’s that Fabricio Coloccini should be fit for Saturday, following his hamstring injury.
Fabricio – before he through the comb and scissors away 😀
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton is confident he will be able to pick the Argentine defender for the match on Saturday, as he told the official site today:
“Fabricio will be fine for Swansea,” “That’s a boost because he has been a consistent performer this season.”
Hughton also expects Ryan Taylor to be ready, after his slight hamstring complaint, but it seems that Nicky Butt will not make the game.
We expect Coloccini to partner Mike Williamson in defense on Saturday, and Alan Smith to start in the defensive midfield position, and that should shore up our defense quite a bit from last night.
