Danny Simpson will miss Wednesday’s Championship game with Crystal Palace because of a slight ankle injury.
Danny Simpson – out for the next two games
And with Ryan Taylor being sent off on Saturday, our two right backs are out of Wednesday night’s game, so who plays right-back against Crystal Palace is anybody’s guess.
Steven Taylor is good in that position, but of course he is out with a still undiagnosed knee injury.
The 23-year-old Simpson, will also miss the game at Leicester City, but there is hope he can come back for the visit of Cardiff City a week on Friday.
This is a bad time to be getting so many injuries, that’s for sure.
Newcastle manager talked about Danny’s injury today
“Danny will probably miss the next couple of games but we’re certainly hopeful that he’ll be OK for the Cardiff game.”
We have no idea who will play at right back.
Young James Tavernier played well in his one first team appearance in the Carlin Cup last year, and we suppose Ben Tozer or even Danny Guthrie could also play there.
Any thoughts on who may play right back on Wednesday night?
We’ll pass them on to Chris. 😀
