Karl Darlow: 'I can be Newcastle United's number one goalkeeper'

Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow insists that he is happy to be patient for an opportunity to challenge Tim Krul as the club's number one goalkeeper.

Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow has suggested that he can challenge Netherlands international Tim Krul to become the club's main keeper.

The 24-year-old, who joined the club from Nottingham Forest last season before returning to the City Ground on loan, insists that he is happy to be patient for a chance on Tyneside.

"You can be out the side one game then in for the rest of the season," Darlow told the Shields Gazette. "It's about training as hard as I can and pushing Tim [Krul] as hard as I can and waiting for my chance.

"As second-choice keeper, it's about patience, and I knew the situation when I came up here. I'm still young and hungry to achieve big things."

Darlow made his Newcastle debut in a 4-1 victory over Northampton Town in the League Cup last month.
