Speaking on Monday morning he said: “I’ve got no doubt in my mind that the players will be looking forward to the game.
“It’s not a case of resting anyone, we will try to win the match – we will hopefully have a nice strong bench with players who can come on and cause a lot of problems.

“We have players here who are as quick as anybody Newcastle have got. We will be walking out tomorrow night alongside a Newcastle player saying `I am going to be better than you, ` and if we have seven or eight players that can play better then it’s going to be a good night for us.
“We will enjoy the evening, it will be a good atmosphere and it’s a game of Football – if it’s a game of Football you’ve got a chance.”
