There was some really good news form Rafa Benitez at his press conference this afternoon when he said Dwight Gayle is in the squad for the vital game at Huddersfield tomorrow afternoon.
Gayle has been training well for the last three days and Rafa seems to be very happy with him.
Whether he will start tomorrow is another matter and it seems touch and go, but if he doesn’t start we’d like to see the experienced Daryl Murphy start the game.
The Irish striker looked really good when he came on at Brighton and he’s definitely up for the fight.

Big boost reading Gayle is back in the squad. Hopefully we won’t need to call on him though. #NUFC

Gayle back then. Despite our good form without him, I’d start him tomo. He’s exactly what we need on the counter against Huddersfield. #NUFC

The way we come back against Brighton, I wouldn’t risk Dwight Gayle tomorrow (maybe bench), give Daz Murphy another chance to shine. #NUFC
