Bolton`s Danny Shittu (that`s such a useful surname) acknowledges that today`s trip to Newcastle United could be difficult, but believes his team have the ability to cause an upset.

‘They have a got a great team and proved that at the weekend, because Old Trafford is not an easy place to get a point so they will be buzzing after that,` said the big defender, referring to last week`s draw at Manchester United.

‘They will be looking to take that on this weekend and try and get three points at home but we are looking to go there, to that fortress and break down their walls and get the points – it is definitely something we believe we can do.

‘We are working hard in training to do the right things and know what we have to do, everyone is working hard.`

Shittu was a surprise late signing from Watford and is expected to be on the subs bench at St James` Park, before making his first competitive start in next week’s Carling Cup tie against Northampton.
