Kieran Trippier confirms he will travel to Brentford with Newcastle United

Kieran Trippier spoke to BBC 5 Live on Wednesday night about his foot injury at Newcastle United.

Kieran Trippier has revealed he will be in London with Newcastle United when they take on Brentford this weekend.

The right-back is in a fight to play again this season after fracturing the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during the 1-0 win at Aston Villa.

At best, it is hoped Trippier can return for the remaining few games of the campaign as the Magpies battle to retain their Premier League status.

Despite being injured, that won’t stop the 31-year-old from making an impact.

Trippier has vowed to support his teammates in any way possible - and revealed he’ll be making the journey to West London on Saturday, as well future games.

A win for Eddie Howe’s side against the Bees will see them leapfrog their hosts and further increase their survival hopes.

‘I’ll be travelling to the game at the weekend’

“It was a difficult moment,” he told BBC 5 Live on Wednesday night.

“The way I started at Newcastle - three wins on the bounce - but it’s football, these things happen.

“I’m positive about the injury, it is what it is. I’m an experienced player now so I know how to deal with it.

“The most important thing now is to help my teammates, help the team move forward.

“I’ll be travelling to the game at the weekend, so to help my teammates on and off the pitch is the most important thing.”

‘I’ll be supporting the lads’

Trippier added: “It’s a big injury for me, I’m disappointed about it but the lads got a good result against West Ham.

“I’ll encourage the lads around the dressing room and training ground and be there when they’re playing.

“My presence will be there. I would have loved to have been on the pitch with my teammates to help them but I’ll be supporting the lads, they know that.”
