Peter Lovenkrands could be an important player this afternoon for Newcastle, because the side needs somebody who can put the ball into the back of the net.
Peter Lovenkrands – has been good acquisition for Newcastle
Danish International Lovenkrands fully expects Newcastle to bring in new strikers, and he his not fazed at all, and expects a big club like Newcastle to do exactly that.
This is what Peter said today:
“I have no problem people going on about needing more strikers and goals,” “I expect the club to go and sign some strikers in the summer. That is what happens when you are at a big club.”
“Over the course of a season, you will get a lot of injuries and suspensions and after Andy Carroll left, there is only me Shola, Nile and Shefki because Besty is injured.” “Nile is probably just a bit too young, so you need strikers.”
“And it has always been like that throughout my career. You need to fight for your place and if new strikers come along, I will fight again.” “It looks like we are safe, but you want to have that record at home that teams cannot expect to come up to St James’ Park and beat us.”
“We want to finish strongly at home and we want three points to get back in that top half of the table. A couple of games ago when we were ninth, it was looking like a very good season for us, but now we are down to 12th or 13th.”
“We want points to get back up the table and it will look a lot better.”
Peter scored an excellent opportunist goal against Birmingham after only two minutes earlier this year at St. Andrews, and that was from a brilliant Gutierrez left wing cross.
Jonas later was to set up Leon best for Newcastle’s second goal and the Argentine winger had a great game that night.
We are hopping that Jonas will star again this afternoon, because he’s showing some good form lately, and of course Peter Lovenkrands can always score goals – he just needs that little bit of luck.
But the pressure is definitely on Newcastle to score some goals today, they have just one goal in their last four games, since they hammered Wolves 4-1.
A good win today would be great because not only will we get all 3 points, but Newcastle’s goal difference will also be improved and that’s likely to lift us a few places in the league at the end of the season.
Peter was a great free transfer for Newcastle and in 70 appearances so far for Newcastle, he has scored 25 goals, 6 this season, and the 31 year-old has played 22 times for Denmark with one goal.
