Dubravka appreciates support of fellow Newcastle keepers

Martin Dubravka appreciates the support he has from his fellow goalkeepers at Newcastle United.

It is understood that Rafa Benitez has been impressed with the manner in which Karl Darlow in particular has responded to Dubravka's arrival, with the former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper improving key aspects of his game since.

“I had to fight for my position from the moment I signed a [loan] contract with Newcastle," Dubravka told nufcTV.

“I was coming to a new team and the other goalkeepers were on the top level also.

“I'm happy because Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot were very nice to me. I appreciated it because we were are all in the same team, we were in a difficult situation and nobody probably expected us to be safe with five games left.
