We did well at the end..
Nikos watched the Worthington Cup game against Brentford from the Players Lounge. "I did not expect it to be an easy game. There is not such thing in football anymore as even the lower division side are getting stronger and stronger and this game was not the exception. This was the rule. Brentford scored an important early goal and unfortunately we did not have many "great" chances to score. When Shola scored I was sure there was no comeback for Brentford. In the second half we were playing much better compared to our first half but scoring the equalising goal gave our side the confidence needed to win the game. I was very happy to see Craig Bellamy score a hat trick after coming as a substitute. It is a clear indication that Newcastle does have alternative solutions when problems arise and that there are quality players ready to help the team achieve its goal in every game."
