As the current Premier League draw specialists, it would be nice to see NUFC get a much needed three points on Saturday, preferably without throwing away last minute equalisers to former players. Joe Kinnear has provided a modicum of good news with the latest injury update coming out of SJP. He said:

“It wasn’t ideal against Stoke on Saturday in midfield. We’d already lost Nicky and Damien before the game and then Danny got injured in the first-half. But looking ahead to Sunday we’ll probably have Butt and Guthrie back and maybe, just maybe, Duff as well. So hopefully we’ll be going down to Portsmouth with the strongest side that is available to us, apart from Joey Barton.

It will be a tough game, we know that, but I always go into matches looking to win and Sunday will be no different.’
