A little bit of a surprise today as Andy Carroll will not be fit for the vital game at Cardiff on Sunday.
Andy Carroll – may be fir for Wednesday at Blackpool
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton explained:
“Andy has not quite made it for Cardiff.
“But we’re very hopeful he’ll be OK for Wednesday at Blackpool.”
This is surprising but it seems that Andy is not a quick healer and keeps getting these niggly little injuries that keep him out for a string of games.
Even more reason we need an experienced striker in the squad before too long.
We expect 18 year-old Nile Ranger to start with Kevin Nolan in a wothdrawn striker role, we played against Liecester City.
