There’s certainly been a lot of discussion following Newcastle’s seemingly disastrous defeat at Derby County on Tuesday night.
Danny Simpson –
But after we all calmed down a little, got over the shock of a 3 goal loss, and looked at the top of the table in the cold light of day, we’re in a more than decent position still, and a few wins in the upcoming games will put us back into an excellent position.
Danny Simpson, one of Newcastle new signings in January, has talked today about the disappointing defeat today.
Simpson told the local Evening Chronicle:
“If we go on an unbeaten run of 15 games again we will probably get promoted.”
“So we start again. We’ve done well up to now and, although Derby was disappointing, we can turn it round with another unbeaten run.”
“To go from what we had last Friday against Cardiff to what we had at Derby is massively disappointing.”
“But credit to them – they battled well and took their chances when they got into the final third.”
“It was one of those away games when you see the crowd and you realise that it is a big game for them.”
“But they did what they did very well.
Simpson did pick up another hamstring problem on Tuesday night, and maybe a fitness doubt for Saturday afternoon.
Danny continued and addressed his injury:
“I felt my hamstring in the first half but I managed to get through it.” “I will see how it is in the next few days, but I think I am all right.”
If Danny is not fit, we would expect Ryan Taylor to come back in at right back, or Chris may given Hungarian youngster Tamas Kadar a chance in that position.
6’2″ tall Tamas is an up-and-coming defender at Newcastle, and he’s always been solid when he’s appeared in the first team this season, and we have real confidence in this lad for the future.
Comments very welcome.
