Newcastle boss: Duff looks a different player

He told the Evening Chronicle: “Damien Duff looks a different player in the last three or four games.

“He looks like the Damien Duff we brought here at the start of the season, and I am really, really pleased for him because he is a great guy to work with.

“I hope he finishes the season like he has played these last four games, if you include his two international performances.

“We can look forward to the Damien Duff everyone knows for the next four years when we start pre-season in July.”
