Kieron Dyer sees Glenn Roeder as the man to lead Newcastle to glory. And after so many injury setbacks he has earned the name 'Sick Note', the midfielder wants to be part of it.
The 27-year-old will miss the game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night after he suffered a gash to his thigh as he collided with advertising hoardings during Sunday's game.
But don't look too much into that. He is simply being rested because Newcastle have qualified for the next stage of the competition.
Dyer: 'I knew the barrier was coming and I caught it at the wrong angle. I slit my leg open, but it was never going to keep me off the pitch.
'There were no stitches, it is just really deep. I needed it cleaned out and a piece of skin removed. Hopefully it will clear up.
'I don't think I will feature against Frankfurt, but I expect to be playing in our next Premiership match against Reading at St James' Park a week on Wednesday.
'For me, it is one step at a time, but if it was not for the injuries, I would be up for playing against Frankfurt.
'My hamstrings are not in my mind anymore. I showed at the end I was still running and that is a good sign. I feel strong and I just want to play.'
