Jose Enrique’s hamstring has been playing up a bit since he returned to the Newcastle side, about 6 weeks ago.
Jose Enrique – you would think he had just scored!
In his comeback game on 6th March, he lasted only 33 minutes during the 6-1 demolition of Barnsley, before being replaced by Tamas Kadar, and Jose has been rested for a game or two since then, as manager Chris Hughton has tried to bring the player back slowly.
And Jose missed the game on Saturday, but this time it was because of a bug, and even his replacement Tamas Kadar had to leave the game in the first half against Blackpool, with what looked like a hamstring problem, and Ryan Taylor came in.
But it looks like Jose may have recovered for tomorrow night, maybe, as he returns to training today, and we’ll see what his reaction is.
Chris Hughton talked today to the Newcastle official web-site with a health update on both Jose and Tamas:
“Jose missed the game with a bug but will return to training today,” “We’re hopeful he’ll be fine but we’ll see how he is today.”
“Tamas, however, won’t be available and he is a slight hamstring problem.”
It’s a pity Tamas picked up his hamstring problem on Saturday, because he’s been wanting to get more playing time lately.
If Jose can slot back in tomorrow night, that would be just fine.
