Good news today for Newcastle fans, in that star left-back Jose Enrique is back in training, after resting up from last Saturday with the flu.
Jose Enrique – in action at Everton
Joe of course missed the disaster at Stevenage last Saturday, when he went down with flu, but it looks like he’ll be available for the Sunderland game on Sunday.
Jose was just one of several players who were badly missed at Stevenage, with local lads Steven Taylor, Andy Carroll and Shola Ameobi being some of the others.
Jose Enrique should be able to easily work his way back to full fitness by Sunday, and of course he is very anxious to play in that game.
Now we need to ensure that Steven Taylor, Andy Carroll and Shola are all fit to take their part in the Wear Tyne derby, and if that happens we may even have a good chance of getting our second win this season against Sunderland.
That would be very good, thank you very much.
