Newcastle fans seem to be confident that 21 year-old local lad Jak Alnwick can get the job done at Newcastle, when Tim Krul and Rob Elliot are out with injury.
Jak Alnwick taking charge on Saturday in the second half
82% have faith in the Hexham-born goalkeeper following his fine performance in the second half on Saturday, in Newcastle’s fantastic 2-1 win over Chelsea.
We hope to get a more accurate prognosis on the injury to Rob Elliott and Tim Krul – to see when either goalkeeper can return.
But it looks like Jak will be in goal for some very important games coming up this month, including the next four games at Arsenal on Saturday, at Tottenham in the Capital One Cup the following Wednesday, at home to Sunderland and then at Manchester United.
What a debut of games for the 21 year-old.
