Carroll singing for first team recall

Despite a mixed performance against Hull City reserves on Tuesday night, Andy Carroll has hoped his goal (and not his penalty miss) will be what Joe Kinnear takes out of his efforts from the game. Carroll scored a tidy equaliser but saw his penalty easily saved as rumours persist that he`ll be on his way down to Norwich City come January. However Carroll himself hopes a recall to JFK`s squad is on the cards, saying:

"I just need to keep going. I have missed penalties before and always continued to score goals. You cannot just give up if you miss a penalty. Once I had hit it I thought 'this is bottom corner all day,` but the goalkeeper guessed the right way. That is what penalties are all about - you pick your direction and hit it, but if the goalkeeper guesses right that is the way it goes and you get on with it.

Overall, I am happy, although my fitness has not been as high as I would like. I have been doing extra work in training and that has made a difference. Now I am up there in terms of fitness - I have just played 90 minutes for the first time this season. I kept on running strong until the end, so hopefully the manager will see something and give me the chance.

Newcastle United come first. If I am needed here as cover for injuries then so be it - but I would love to go on loan. We are a bit short at the moment, so we will see what happens. I will just keep going and try to get into the first team. If a loan comes along, though, it would be good for experience."
