It seems we have a number of players doubtful for Saturday’s last home game of the season against Ipswich Town.
Chris Hughton – injury update from the Newcastle gaffer
If Newcastle avoid defeat the club will have their first unbeaten home record at Newcastle since 1907.
Chris Hughtonwill be hoping to welcome back the two Argentine internationals Jonas Gutierrez and Fabricio Coloccini, but both still appear to be doubtful for Saturday.
Hughton talked about the injury situation at the club after last night’s game:
“Jonas has a slight thigh strain.” “Colo just felt his hamstring.”
“I hope they’ll be fit for Saturday – they’re two players who have played a really big part in this.”
“Fitz Hall felt his hamstring slightly.” “We don’t know how bad – we’ll assess it this week and I would imagine he’s very doubtful for Ipswich.”
If Coloccini and Hall are nor fit then Hungarian U-21 International Tamas Kadar will start alongside Mike Williamson in central defense on Saturday.
And if Jonas is not fit we expect the in-form Joey Barton to continue in midfield.
What a through ball that was for Wayne Routledge’s goal last night – just fantastic
Comments very welcome.
