It seems that 23 year-old midfielder Danny Guthrie and 24 year-old Spanish striker Xisco, remain sidelined because of their respective knee and groin injuries for tomorrow’s game at Wolverhampton.
Xisco – sidelined by groin injury
This is what Newcastle manager said today about the injury situation:
“Danny’s definitely out, as is Xisco, who missed the midweek game,” “He’ll miss tomorrow as well, but that’s it.”
“Sol Campbell won’t be involved, but we’re very much looking forward to him being available for the Blackpool game.”
“It’s our choice. Where we are at this particular moment, his training programme’s been geared to making sure he’s fully up to speed, and he will be by the Blackpool game.”
Meanwhile, Hughton is very aware of Wolverhampton Wanderers having made a good start to the season, after surviving well last season in the Premier League, after being promoted as Coca Cola Championship winners last summer.
Former Sunderland and Ireland manager Mick McCarthy has certainly done a fine job at the club since joining the Staffordshire club, in July of 2006.
Chris Hughton talked about the game:
“It’s a very tough game,” “They’re in good form at the moment. They’re a great example to the likes of ourselves.”
“You speak about the work ethic they have, but they’ve also got a side full of quality.”
Newcastle will do well to get some points from their visit to Molyneux, and we’d be quite happy with a point tomorrow afternoon.
