Newcastle United midfielder Danny Guthrie is looking forward to facing old club Bolton Wanderers this week.

Guthrie said: "I'm really looking forward to making my proper home debut.

"I know a lot of the Bolton lads from last season, but it's all about Newcastle for me now ,and I'm hoping we can win on Saturday. It was a massive season for me last year, and I'll always think of going to Bolton as a big turning point in my career.

"It's why I'll always have a nice feeling when I think of Bolton, because they gave me a chance. I played for Bolton at Newcastle last season and the atmosphere was just unbelievable because Kevin Keegan had just come back.

"I cannot wait to experience that again as a Newcastle player on Saturday."
