Man Utd's Simpson backing Harewood for Newcastle success

Manchester United fullback Danny Simpson is backing Marlon Harewood to be a big hit at Newcastle.

Like Simpson, Harewood is on-loan at Toon - from Aston Villa - and the fullback said: "He's just so strong. Obviously he's experienced, he's been around for years and done the business at other clubs.

"We just know he is going to score. Look at Wednesday night, you just knew he would score a goal. We're looking good up front - even though Shola Ameobi is out.

"I marked him in training and he's so big, strong and powerful - he looks to roll you and try and put you on the back foot.

"He's desperate to play and score goals and I feel like he's desperate to be here."
