Damien Duff has now lost his race to be fit in time for the visit of Manchester United tomorrow night.
Damien Duff – misses game tomorrow night
The 30-year-old missed Sunday’s game at Bolton after picking up a calf injury during the first-half of the goalless draw with Everton at St.James’ Park last month, which is why he was replaced at half time by Jonas Gutierrez.
And coach Chris Hughton told nufcTV on Tuesday morning that the next league game, which is the all important game at Hull City on March 14 is now the target for the Irish winger.
A defeat in that game and we’ll be in really big trouble, that’s for sure
Chris Hughton said today:
“Damien will be not be fit in time for Man United,” “But we should have him back for the game at Hull in 12 days time.”
We should also do some investigations at the club, into why we always have so many injuries each season, much more than any other club in the Premier League
To be without 5 central midfield players tomorrow night, the engine room of the team, for the visit of the reigning European and World Club Champions, seems a little daunting, to say the least.
Especially when we need the points.
