It looks like Argentine Coloccini has a hamstring injury he picked up last night in the first half at the Madejski Stadium.
Fabricio Coloccini – hamstring problem
Newcastle will be assessing the injury in the next day or two and of course it’s next Monday night when our next game is played at Plymouth Argyle.
The Argentine was taken off at the break and Jose Enrique came in but it seems like Hughton is hopeful Coloccini will be OK for next Monday night.
This is what Chris told Newcastle TV today:
“Colo’s felt his hamstring but we’re hoping it’s not pulled and we will learn more on Wednesday.”
“He usually has a quick recovery rate so we’re hoping it’s okay.”
Tamas Kadar is still waiting the results of the hamstring injury he picked up last Saturday, and of course Fitz Hall is also out with a similar injury.
We have to hope that Colo is OK for next Monday, otherwise we may be seeing Danny Simpson playing center-back at Plymouth.
For the record Fabricio has appeared 38 times this season for Newcastle with two goals, and he’s been a rock at the back for the Magpies this season.
