Lovenkrands Back For Barnsley Game

Peter Lovenkrands scored after just 3 minutes against Preston North End, but he then left the field after just 14 minutes injured, and we were concerned that our red-hot striker, may be out for an extended period.

Peter Lovenkrands – returns on Saturday

But the good news is that Peter was not badly injured, and he will return this Saturday, for the home game against Barnsley.

Lovenkrands did miss the win at Watford with his thigh injury, but even then he was touch and go apparently.

Peter has 10 goals this season and eight of them have been scored in the last couple of months.

Manager Hughton says that the Danish striker, who has a decent chance of making the Danish World Cup squad, if he keeps scoring goals, will indeed be ready to make a return this Saturday.

“Peter will be available and that’s a boost,””Thankfully the injury has only kept him out for a couple of weeks and he has only missed one game.”

“Peter has been in terrific form in front of goal and, of course, I hope that he picks up where he left off.”

We would expect Peter to partner Andy Carroll up front this Saturday,  in what will be an attacking 4-4-2 formation.

The only thing Newcastle fans want to see is another 3 points, and with both Andy and Peter in good goal-scoring form, that may be very possible.

The club has 13 games left and every one of them could be a win – at least that’s how the team will approach those final critical games of the season.

    Good news on Lovenkrands.

    But what about Routledge?
    From my experience playing American football, baseball & hockey I’ve never encountered anyone with a calf injury that was a problem for more than a week. The only long term lower leg injuries I am familiar with are torn muscles or the more common “high ankle sprain” which can set one back six weeks. Have I lived in a fool’s paradise or is the “calf injury” the same as the ice hockey “upper body injury” which can mean nearly as much as a heart transplant? Set me straight fellow bloggers.

    Is the game televised or is it possible to watch it on the web?

    And to think that we nearly lost out on Lovin’Scran by leaving him kick his heels until almost the close of the transfer deadline.
    Yet another example of Ashley and Llambias almost screwing up again for the sake of a few bob. Some of those who are getting all loved-up over Fatboy and Llambias and their cheap PR exercise on Sky should remember that.
