Newcastle have a very important game against Ipswich Town this coming Saturday.
Chris Hughton – injury concerns for Saturday
Newcastle have just two games remaining in this rather magic season, Ipswich on Saturday and then QPR a week on Sunday in London.
If Newcastle can win both games they will amass a fabulous 104 points on the season, and will be at least 9 points ahead of second placed WBA.
Chris Hughton does have some injury worries for Saturday’s game, and he talked about these this morning:
“We’re still hopeful that Jonas and Colo can play some part.”
“They are due back in training by the end of the week and we will assess their fitness further then.”
“Fitz, though, won’t be available.”
It may be that young Tamas Kadar gets a start in central defense on Saturday, but whoever plays in the game, all the players will be there at the end of the game – which we must win – to celebrate this season, when the club will be presented with the CC Championship trophy for 2009-2010.
The game is a sell-out and will set the record attendance for the Championship at over 50,000.
The players and the coaches at Newcastle have been simply magnificent this season – there’s just no other way to describe it all.
