Newcastle's Guthrie rewarded for biding his time

Newcastle midfielder Danny Guthrie made his first Premier League start for six months in the recent win over Stoke after the influential Cheick Tiote was ruled out with a knee injury. The 24-year-old said: "It wasn't easy coming in to replace Cheick because we're totally different players.

"We knew I was not going to be a direct replacement for him, but I had to adapt my game a little bit.

"Playing with Yohan, who plays a bit more forward than Cheick, I've had to sit a bit deeper than I'm used to."
