After receiving criticism on Twitter, Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow has now answered back.

The on-loan keeper had a dip in form which led to him getting dropped in January, with some Forest fans claiming that he was too focused on coming to Newcastle in the summer, rather than Nottingham Forest’s current Championship campaign.

Darlow says that the supporters have got it wrong and that all he ever wants to do is to play football and show the world what he can do.

Recently restored to the Forest team, Karl Darlow will be hoping to finish the season strongly and impress both Forest and Newcastle fans.

Though hopes of promotion are unlikely with Forest currently 12 points off the play-off places.

Karl Darlow speaking to the Nottingham Post;

“I have not thought about being up at Newcastle, it has not crossed my mind. I have only been up there once. That is it.

“I keep getting tweets from people saying that my mind is up in Newcastle already. But it is not at all. I want to finish this season with Forest and I want to do well with Forest. Mentally, it has not been a problem.”

Promotion with Forest;

“For me, it is not going to be good if I play badly, is it? I want to play well in every game, I want to show the world what I can do.

“I said in the summer that I wanted to sign off by winning promotion with Forest and, while that is a long way off, if we can get a run of positive results going; if we can start to pick up momentum, anything is possible.

“All I have ever wanted to do is play football and get out on the pitch. I love playing for this team and I just want to play for Forest.”
