Newcastle Assessing Coloccini Hamstring Injury

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.

    This is where Chris has been better than any other manager we have had at Newcastle since our first return to the top flight.

    Soon as a player gets a tweak they are off. No if’s, no but’s……..caution is the key to injuries.

    If Colocini doesnt play in the next game it will be nice to see Taylor or a youngster get a chance.

    Would like to see young Tavernier play RB, with Simpson in the middle again. Failing him we have CB option in Tozer and Morris.

    Tavernier played very well in the defeat at P’Boro in the cup and has had a decent season for the excellent youth team we have.

    As long as he’s OK for next season, that’ll do!

    i think r taylor will be rb with simpson cb if collo’s injury does require a few weeks off, we only need a point to become champions and our back up defenders are more than capable of keeping the defence tight

    Really hope he lets Tozer have a shot as there is no point playing Simpson there as he will never play in CB next year in the top flight unless the circumstances are drastic! We should let our talent have a bite at the cherry now that all is secure! It’s my understanding that we paid a (relatively) handsome sum for Ben so he must be pretty decent at the back, good enough to play against the likes of Plymouth; at least to gain experience. Regardless, I’ll stick by Chris’ decisions as he has lead the club to CCC glory this season with aplomb!!

    If there’s any risk at all with Coloccini, don’t play him. The lad has a chance of going to the World Cup, we’re pretty much champions now, let’s give him a break and give the youngsters a game.

    I agree AOTN – play it safe as we’ve done all season with injuries.
    I’d love to see a youngster get a game.

    Think if he has picked up a injure we can afford to rest him up.Has hopes of going to the world cup so think we should give him the rest of the season off give the fella the chance to get fit for the world cup if picked of course be very surprised if he wasn’t,as the man has been a rock in newcastle defence this season.
