In recent years they've been the type of team that can go somewhere and win 4-0 and then get a poor result. You are never quite sure what to expect from them. Even though they are in the mix down at the bottom they will try to play their way out. They go the right way about it and it's looking more promising for them than it did. It's up to us to play our game. On our day if we play well we're capable of beating them.
They have good players. Lee Clarke is back from injury and he's someone Iknow from back home. I know him from the Wallsend Boys Club. He's older than me but he's a great lad. I kjnow him wel,, he's a good bloke and hit's good to see him back. He's a clever player and he's been injured for a while. It's good to see him back playing.
Michael Carrick is looking forward to bumping into - literally - another of his fellow former members of the Wallsend Boys Club on Saturday.
