It was good news from Rafa today in his press conference that Ciaran Clark is in full training with the first team squad and hopefully the Irish International can start against Preston on Monday night and help to keep the back door bolted.
Twice in the last 7 games we have conceded three goals and in those games we have conceded a total of 10 goals – far too many.
That’s an areas Rafa will want to improve over the final three games of the season after we have gained a measly one point in our previous three games.
That has put self inflicted pressure on the team.

Here’s a team that could be strong at the back and if we play near our best form we can win the game against the Lilywhites.

Daryl Murphy has shown that when he is played he can score goals why we have him up front in preference to Mitro.
A possible change could be Mo Diame in the number 10 position but Ayoze can score goals when you least expect him too – Monday night could be that time.
There’s room for some heroes at Newcastle – players who for instance can score the goals to propel us back to the Premier League.
Somebody needs to take that chance for glory.
What would your team be for Preston?
