Swansea's Graham tipped to get back in Toon

Danny Graham has been tipped to end his goal slump by shooting down boyhood club Newcastle’s Europa League hopes.
Swansea’s record signing hasn’t scored in six Premier League games - his longest run without finding the net this season.
But team-mate Nathan Dyer is backing the £3.5million hitman to add to his 10 top-flight goals on Friday when the Toon visit the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans’ winger said: “Danny will be pumped up for this as he’s from Newcastle. I’m sure he’ll try his best to get on the scoresheet.
“Strikers go through patches where they don’t score for a couple of games and then score constantly. Everybody doubted Danny at the start of the season, but his finishing ability is of the highest level.
“He does a lot of hard work for us on his own up front. Sometimes he doesn’t get the chances which can be frustrating for him.
“But if he gets a chance, he’ll stick it away.”
Graham faces competition from Luke Moore for a starting place, but Swans boss Brendan Rodgers said: “Danny hasn’t had many chances in recent games, but one thing I always know I get from Danny is a real shift.”
