Fraser Forster sends message on Twitter ahead of return to Newcastle

The Southampton goalkeeper was once a Newcastle player.

Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has sent a message to fans on Twitter ahead of his return to former club Newcastle United this weekend.

The 28-year-old has been in excellent form in the Premier League since returning from injury.

And he is happy with his week's training ahead of Southampton's clash with Newcastle on Saturday afternoon. The South Coast club could move to within just a point of fifth-placed West Ham United with a win and if the Hammers also lose.

The Magpies may see the irony in a former goalkeeper hindering their battle against relegation.

But, in truth, the Southampton shot stopper is the least of Newcastle's worries.

Newcastle need goals if they are to have any chance of staying up but an attacking approach will further expose their already woeful defence.

The Saints are in form and, even during a 1-0 loss to Leicester City, the signs were there that Southampton could easily carve open a weaker side.

Newcastle are a much weaker side...
