ALAN PARDEW will hand Danny Guthrie the chance to revive his season against Spurs at St James’ Park on Saturday.For what it's worth, there's your Newcastle update. Guthrie is 5 in the fantasy game and if I were looking for a midfielder at that enabling price I would take David Hoilett, who has been putting up good points for his price and whose Blackburn host West Brom this weekend.
However, Andy Carroll and Steven Taylor are rated "extremely doubtful" with thigh and hamstring problems.
Hard-working midfielder Guthrie caught the eye in the Wear-Tyne derby and, with Alan Smith ruled out of the encounter with Harry Redknapp’s side and Cheik Tiote still banned, the Shropshire- born player has done enough to impress his manager in just under an hour against the Black Cats.
Pardew – who also has Dan Gosling fit and available – told the Chronicle: "Danny Guthrie will play.
"He was excellent in the second half at Sunderland.
"And I hope he will take it into Saturday."
