Newcastle's Forster: Celtic can beat Udinese

Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster is confident that the team can get the required result against Udinese on Thursday.

The 23-year old gloveman, on loan from Newcastle United, is preparing for the final Europa League group stage match in Udine this week and feels the form of the Glasgow giants is good enough to record maximum points to qualify for the next phase of the competition despite a dismal run on the road in Europe.

"That's six league games in a row without dropping a point and winning breeds confidence. I don't see why we can't go to Italy and win," Forster said.

"Everyone brings up the club's poor away record in Europe and the difficulty Celtic have had winning in Italy but records are there to be broken.

"We felt hard done by when Udinese got a late penalty for a draw when they played us at home (in late September) but we have to put that out our minds, stay positive and hopefully play the way we can."
