It’s a little surprising that Peter Lovenkrands has been used so little by the Newcastle club this season.
Peter Lovenkrands – wants to take his chance tomorrow
But with Andy Carroll being out for at least the next two games, it looks like Peter will get a chance at the DW Stadium at Wigan tomorrow afternoon.
This is what the Danish International said today:
“We have to show we’re not a one man team,” “Andy has been great, but there are a lot of players waiting in the wings who are looking to prove themselves, not just to replace him, but also to play with him. This is our chance.”
“I hope it opens up a door for myself. It’s been a strange season for me so far and I just hope I get a chance in these next couple of games. It’s been hard for me because I want to play. It’s been really frustrating.”
Lovenkrands of course was a key figure in last season’s Championship promotion season, especially in the second half of the season.
Peter scored a total of 16 goals in 32 appearances last season, and has 21 goals in 53 total appearances so far for the Tyneside club, since arriving two years ago on a free transfer.
Peter will hope to be involved tomorrow, even as a substitute, but it could be that Peter could come good again, as he did in the second half of last season.
At that time, in the first couple of months of last year, he was scoring goals for fun, and he hit 13 of the 16 goals last season, in 2010.
“I’ve never been given a run in the side, and even when I’ve come in and done well, I’ve not kept my place in the next game,” “It hasn’t been good, it’s been difficult for me.”
“A lot has happened in the last few weeks with a new coach coming in, a lot has changed, and hopefully things can still happen for me.”
“I’m desperate to get back into the team and I’m hungry to play. I’m not here to just sit and watch. I feel I’ve been doing well and I want to play.”
“I came here to play,” “I didn’t come here to sit on the bench. I don’t think there are any players who would be happy with that. So I’ve just got to keep working hard and hope the chance comes.”
“It’s too early to talk about leaving. A new coach has come in and he is trying get to know the team and the players.”
“I just hope I’m given a chance to prove myself. He has said everyone starts with a clean slate and that seems to be the case in training.”
Peter can earn his wages by doing a job for Newcastle in the next two games at least, which are lining up to be so crucial for the club.
Goals from Peter is what we want to see in the next two games, and the Danish International striker, who could be in the Denmark squad to play England next month, has proved before, that he can deliver to goods in a black and white shirt.
Howay The Lads!!
