Argentine center-back Fabricio Coloccini will return to the Newcastle United squad for Saturday’s trip to Ipswich Town.
Coloccini – fit again after minor niggle
However our 19 year-old Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar misses out again, after missing the game on Tuesday night with a minor groin strain.
Coloccini also sat out of the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Peterborough because of a small niggle.
Tamas Kadar will remain on Tyneside over the weekend after suffering a groin strain in training.
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton told Newcastle United TV today:
“Tamas unfortunately will miss out,”
“Fabricio Coloccini will come back in though.”
“He had a very minor niggle after Plymouth so we decided best not to risk him at Peterborough.”
And Danny Simpson, who jarred his ankle during the 3-1 win over Plymouth last Saturday, was still rated as doubtful for the world-wide televised game with the Tractor Boys, KO 5:30 pm.
We need a win on Saturday, and nothing less will be good enough.
