Newcastle keeper Darlow: I don't want to be No2 again

Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow is determined to grab his chance with No1 Martin Dubravka injured.

He has signed a new contract and sees his future at Newcastle. Even so, his view of the long term is clear.

"This is an opportunity for me to show what I can do and, after that, it's a decision that will be taken out of my hands," he told the Daily Mail.

"As long as I know I have done as much as I can do then that's OK. But I couldn't resign myself to being No 2 again.

"The ambition is inside me and I have the confidence in my ability to be a No 1 somewhere and, if the situation comes around where I am going to be a No 2 for a long period, then I would do my best to come back as a No 1."
