Perennial practice game opponents Gretna look set to head to Tyneside this afternoon as further ammunition for EMO to lunch on. With a few of Sam`s signings yet to experience some sort of real competitive action and others coming back from injury it seems a good bit of thinking to get the likes of Enrique and Cacapa more attuned to having lumps kicked out of them. Saying that Owen will probably feel a twinge until McClaren calls him up on Sunday.
