Rafa Benitez has just completed his press conference for the game against Blackburn tomorrow at St. James’ Park and some of his comments are being reported on the Newcastle United Twitter account and in Chronicle Live.
It looks like both Jack Colback and former Blackburn player Grant Hanley will not be available for this game through injury.

These are some of Rafa’s initial comments.
“We are doing well, that is true, but before any game I send the same message – concentrate on the game and get three points.”
“We are doing a lot of good things, and you have to give credit to our players for that.”
“We have to be sure that we concentrate on Saturday, because these are the kind of game where you can make mistakes.”
“Colback has a problem with his eye – he will not be available – and Hanley has a problem with his shin.”
“Blackburn have a manager with experience, and he know what he has to do to win games.”
“We got the best from Stevie Gerrard at Liverpool. He was a leader and an example – you do not find many like that now.”
“It’s a shame our fans don’t have more tickets for Hull.” “That is my concern.”
Rafa’s so right about Steven Gerrard – he was always a great role model at Liverpool.
