Newcastle May Rest Players With Injury Niggles At Watford

Steve McClaren has given his press conference today for the FA Cup 3rd round tie at Watford tomorrow and Steve says he will play his strongest team – but may need to rest some players who have a few injury niggles.

Newcastle have a home game against Manchester United on Tuesday night and that’s presumably why the head coach will need to rest some players tomorrow to ensure they are fit for Tuesday.

Anyway – that’s the party line today.

Steve McClaren – gave his press conference today

This is some of that Steve McClaren has said in his press conference today:

We are coming up against a Watford team in very good form, so it won’t be easy to win the game. But we will go there to win it.

We’ve got one or two players who have got niggles and it’s a big risk, so we need to decide if we play them.

Tomorrow will be the strongest team we can put out without taking a risk on anyone.

With the position we are in, it doesn’t matter if it’s cup or league. It’s an important game and one we want to go and win.

We need a win. We need to gather momentum and tomorrow is an opportunity to do that. Arsenal is the standard and the level.

It would be nice to get a win at Watford tomorrow since we have so few of those over the last 12 months – never mind just this season.

Two in three fans think we will lose this game.
