We always seem to have a lot more injuries than other clubs, and there are signs today that injuries are starting to mount.
Joey Barton – injured foot
News today that Joey Barton has been ruled out of Newcastle’s trip to Ipswich on Saturday.
The midfielder is out with some kind of foot problem, and will not be available for the Ipswich game.
Chris Hughton said:
“Joey will not figure. He has had a problem with his foot of late.”
“It is a bit of a hangover from a problem he had earlier in the season, but we hope to have him back in contention soon.”
Barton joins a rather worrying and growing injury list for the Magpies, which already includes Danny Simpson, Shola Ameobi, Jonas Gutierrez and Tamas Kadar.
And with Danny Guthrie getting himself ruled out because of his red card on Tuesday night at Peterborough, Chris will not have too many players to choose from at Portman Road.
But whoever gets in the starting lin-up Saturday need to produce, so we can get the 3 points we need.
