It turns out that Fitz Hall has trained for the last two days, so if Coloccini isn’t fit for the game at Plymouth, Fitz could be making his 7th appearance on Tyneside.
Fitz Hall – could play on Monday night
Newcastle manager talked today about Fabricio’s hamstring injury to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:
“Fabricio just felt his hamstring slightly.”“We just very much hope it is a slight one, but we won’t know until we assess it. I would think he’ll be a doubt, but we’ll find out.”
“We’re hoping Fitz will be available.” “He’s trained the last two days, so he’ll train right the way through and be available for Plymouth.”
And we think Chris will play Fitz Hall on Monday night to give him a game, if there is any doubt at all about Coloccini.
Hughton looked cool, collected and pleased following the game last night, and he continued:
“We have three games left, and we’d like to go through to the end of the season and put ourselves in a position to win all three games.”
“That’ll be one of our targets, but the initial one is to try and secure this title.”
Winning their last 3 games of the season will give Newcastle a 9 game winning streak to see out the season.
Then we’ll need to continue that run when we start in the Premiership in August. 😀
