Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to reveal that they’d like to see Karl Darlow keep his place in Steve Bruce’s XI, even after Martin Dubravka returns to full fitness.

The Slovakia international, who is Bruce’s No.1 and was called ‘outstanding’ by the Magpies boss in February, has been missing so far this season with an ankle injury, leaving Darlow as the man to fill in.

The Chronicle quote the ex-Crystal Palace boss as saying: ‘How many times have I come into a press conference and said the goalkeeper has been outstanding. He was outstanding again.’

Impressively, the former Nottingham Forest man has done well. He excelled against Tottenham recently to keep Newcastle in the game, which allowed us to snatch a point at the death after a controversial penalty award.

So far, the Englishman has made four Premier League starts this term, conceding five goals and keeping one clean sheet.

Additionally, Gareth Southgate was even alerted to the glovesman after his heroics against Jose Mourinho’s men.

Of course, Dubravka is the outright No.1 and would surely be playing if not for his injury.

In that respect, it is interesting to see Newcastle fans say that they’d like Darlow to keep his place, even when the former Sparta Prague shot-stopper is back.

Let’s see what they’ve been saying about the situation on Twitter…
