Murphy will spearhead the Toon attack in tonight's FA Cup third round replay against Birmingham at St James' Park having scored the visitors' goal in the first meeting before bagging the victor at Brentford on Saturday.
England's oldest knockout competition has not been particularly kind to the Magpies of late and part of Rafa Benitez's colossal rebuild on Tyneside will surely be to improve the attitude shown towards the cup by those behind the scenes at St. James' Park.
The ex-Celtic man scored for United in the drawn FA Cup tie away to Birmingham and then netted the victor away to Brentford last weekend, and Benitez says he knew that a full fit Murphy would get an opportunity. No time frame, he will be assessed every game.
"I have to try to change some players, especially because we have one or two that have little issues physically and I want to preserve them".
Benitez said: "Our squad is quite young but we signed Daryl because he has experience in our division and it has proved you have to have balance".
"Players like Daryl Murphy can make a difference and can be important for us".

Benitez is also without African Nations Cup trio Chancel Mbemba, Christian Atsu and Mohamed Diame and the cup-tied Sammy Ameobi, Jamie Sterry and Haris Vuckic, although midfielder Cheick Tiote will be included as the club remains in talks with several interested parties over his signature.
'We have (always) had the same way to work as we have had during this month, ' he said. He's still training well.
And Benitez pointed to the example of summer signing Daryl Murphy, the 33-year-old striker who, with Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic injured, is now set for a run in the side after scoring the victor at Brentford on Saturday.
