Williamson – broke hand training at home
After this afternoon’s game Newcastle manager revealed that Mike broke a bone in his hand while he was training at his home.
Well, would you believe it?
Now the next question is can he play on Wednesday night against Scunthorpe with a splint or something on his hand?
And the answer is no as Williamson will now be out for 3 weeks, which is a big blow to the Magpies.
Hughton revealed after the game today:
“He has broken a bone in his hand. He was doing some fitness work at home and he slipped and caught his third metacarpal in the back of his hand.””It was a freak accident really. It was one of those unusual ones and unfortunately for us and unfortunately for him, he will be out for a short period of time.”
We hope so and we also have Coloccini go off after 50 minutes, but we understand that was just a dead leg, and he should be OK for Wednesday night.
