Daryl Murphy came on yesterday after 61 minutes for Mo Diame and scored Newcastle’s only goal after 76 minutes against Fulham and it was a very good goal too.
Daryl now has 5 goals in only 12 total appearances for the Magpies which includes only 6 starts and he’s our Man of the Match with a good 65% of the vote.
We’d be very surprised if Daryl doesn’t start the next game at Birmingham next Saturday since we need experienced players in the side who can produce the goods when it matters.
We need a good result in that match – like a win and all 3 points – before the long two week International break.
Daryl Murphy in training – need to play more often
That’s an excellent number of goals Daryl has scored given how little he’s played and he could yet be the Newcastle hero this season if he can score more vital goals for us – which he did while Dwight Gayle was out injured – and see us get that automatic promotion slot.
As Dwight gets his sharpness back maybe Rafa will start Daryl – at least at Birmingham next Saturday.
We need to start winning games again after taking just one point from the last two games.
