Moyes Focusing on Newcastle

Manchester United manager David Moyes admits his team have found some confidence after their 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match in midweek.

“It was a terrific performance and an all-round good night at Old Trafford, possibly one of the best nights I have ever been involved with in football because of the football, atmosphere and standard of opposition,” said Moyes

“We were good tactically, a bit disappointed with the result but overall happy - although I would have preferred 0-0 than 1-1.”

Moyes, though, insists that his side are not focusing on the second leg match this coming Wednesday, but are rather focusing all their attention on their English Premier League match against Newcastle on Saturday.

“My focus is only on Newcastle. It's important to keep trying to build some momentum and get the three points,” added Moyes.

“We also have an extra day's recovery this week, as we play Bayern on Wednesday.

“The message to the players is the next game is the most important one and that's Newcastle.”

In terms of team news Moyes confirmed that he will be welcoming a few players back from injury for the Newcastle game.

“We have Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans back in training and on the way back and it's good news because we've missed them,” confirmed Moyes.

“Ryan Giggs picked up a wee bit of an injury in the game (against Bayern) and we are not quite so worried about Alex Buttner. He is not as bad as when he first came off.”
