Rafa Benitez has just completed his press conference for the Championship game at Norwich tomorrow night when a full fixture list in the Championship will take place.
Just like the last game at Wolves we will need another win to stay at the top of the Championship, but it will be another extremely difficult game against a side who won 5-1 at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The good news from the press conference today is that Dwight Gayle is fir and back in the squad for tomorrow night’s game.
Dwight Gayle in the squad
Some of Rafa’s initial comments are now out on the Newcastle United Twitter account and also on Chronicle Live.
“We have Dwight Gayle in the squad, so that’s good news.” “We have 25 players available so it’s a problem for me, but it’s a good problem too. It’s a boost.”
“And it’s important to have the top scorer back.”
“Shelvey did well, it was not easy but he was professional and focused.” “The FA investigate other things, maybe they can for this.”
“You can see center-backs smashing into Mitro and nothing happens.”
“It will be a very tough game tomorrow.” “In the first part of the season, they were a team that were candidates to win the title.”
“They’re a very good team, with experience in the division.” “They have players with quality who know their jobs.”
“Norwich are very dangerous. But we have to approach this game with the right mentality because it’s a tough game.”
The fans are not too confident about tomorrow night’s game and it’s the lowest percentage who think we can win the game for a very long time.
