Gutierrez warns Newcastle ahead of Europa League clash

Jonas Gutierrez has admitted that Newcastle United will have to be clever tactically when they take on Metalist Kharkiv in the second leg of their Europa League tie which ended 0-0 at St James’ Park in the first leg.

"We will have to be fairly clever with the way we approach the second leg," he told the Evening Chronicle. "All of us will have to work out the best way to get behind them so we can create the opportunities to score.

"Thursday is going to be a more difficult game than last week, but we are not afraid of the challenge.

"There is not much difference between the two sides. Metalist will attack us more in front of their own fans. But we can score over there. We will create chances.

"The most important thing is that we are clever about how we do that.

"We will attack them, but we must use our heads. Metalist showed at St James' Park that they are a team with goals in them, so we need to look after their offensive players and not allow them space at the back."
