Toon To Play First Team

Toon To Play First Team

Glenn Roeder says he is refusing to jeopardise Newcastle United's European chances by playing a Reserve side in the Intertoto Cup.

World Cup players Jean-Alain Boumsong and Craig Moore are yet to train with the squad for obvious reasons, but the Toon gaffa says he will go for a full strength side to make it through to the UEFA Cup.

Lillestrom are favourites to stand in our way, after the Norwegians won 4-1 in their first-leg tie over Icelandic side Keflavik. The first leg will be on July 15 at St James's Park, with the return the following weekend.

Ex-Manchester City striker Uwe Rosler, now manager of Lillestrom, rested four players for last Saturday's game.

Roeder: 'The Intertoto Cup is very important to us because it offers us a route into the UEFA Cup. Having worked so hard to earn the chance at the end of last season we have to make sure our preparations are thorough and we don't waste the opportunity.

'Lillestrom were full value for their victory and although there is still a second leg to play, they will be favourites to finish off the job next weekend. I wanted to have a close look at our potential opposition at close hand.'

In all honesty, we don't have much beyond a first time to put out on the field as it is, at present.
