We were wondering why Sol Campbell wasn’t on the bench yesterday, but we now understand that he felt his thigh during the Chelsea game, and was rested for yesterday’s game.
Sol Campbell – could get start on Sunday
But Sol will be back for Newcastle United’s important visit to Manchester City, although he will be the only player back from injury for Sunday’s game at the City of Manchester Stadium (Eastlands).
Both injured Danny boys, Guthrie and Simpson are still not ready, and both could make their comebacks in the Reserve game against Aston Villa at home in eight days time.
This is what Chris said about Sol today:
“Sol felt his thigh slightly on Wednesday night,” “He managed to play 90 minutes, but didn’t make it. He’ll be available for next week.”<
“Danny Guthrie and Danny Simpson are back in training, but will probably need a reserve game under their belts.” “Tomorrow’s game is too quick, so we’re looking at next week for them to be back available.”
There has to be a good chance that Sol will get a first Premier League start next Sunday, as his experience at the back may be what the Newcastle side need right now, after again losing a game yesterday at home, that they probably should have won.
But who Chris would leave out could be a very tough decision, with both Coloccini and Williamson both performing well do far this season.
