The Danish International Peter Lovenkrands picked up a knock on Wednesday night against Scunthorpe United.
Peter Lovenkrands – picked up knock against Scunthorpe
The news this morning is not good about Peter Lovenkrands, as the in-form striker will probably miss the game at Bristol City tomorrow.
It looks like Lovenkrands had picked up an ankle injury or a calf injury, whichever report you believe.
News this morning is that he has already had a scan done on his injured ankle, but there is some confusion as the club has said today that report is not true.
If Peter cannot play it should give a chance for Leon Best, but Leon hasn’t scored for Newcastle yet, and the Dane is so much better at putting the ball in the back of the net.
It may well be that Hughton will play a 4-5-1 formation with Carroll up front and Kevin Nolan playing just behind the lone Newcastle striker.
It will also be a chance for Kevin to score a goal or two, which we all know he is well capable of.
Midfielder Nicky Butt is also ready to play, and there’s always our 18 year-old budding young star, Nile Ranger, to play up front with Andy Carroll in a 4-4-2 formation.
But somehow we don’t see Chris putting Nile before his new January signing, Leon Best.
If Peter cannot play it will at least give an opportunity to some other player, and let’s hope whoever plays tomorrow will take their chance big time.
It would be good if Leon plays and gets a couple of goals, and that would give the new signing a confidence boost.
Who do you think should play if Lovenkrands is out tomorrow?
Comments very welcome.
