Newcastle will play at Watford on Saturday, and manager Chris Hughton has talked about the Newcastle injuries.
Peter Lovenkrands – no update on Danish striker – yet!
It looks like midfielder Nicky Butt may be back in the squad for Saturday’s test at Watford as Chris said today:
“Shola Ameobi won’t be back, sadly.” “But we’re hoping Butty will train this week.”
“Whether that will be too soon for Watford, I don’t know.”
“Joey Barton has been training, and it’s just whether we can get him a reserve game or two.”
Shola Ameobi reminds us a lot of Emile Heskey, as he misses so many games with niggly little injuries.
And it seems like Jose Enrique will have a chance – a small chance – of being in the squad, but Wayne Routledge, who surprisingly missed the win over Preston with a calf injury, is still doubtful – so that’s not good news.
But we haven’t seen any news yet on Peter Lovenkrands’ injury, and have to hope it will not keep him out of the squad for too long.
Peter’s goals will be important for the side during the run-in.
