Unfortunate news today that Jonas Gutierrez will not be fit for the final game of the season against West Brom on Sunday at home.
Shane Ferguson – gets a start on Sunday
The Argentine picked up a slight knock in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea, but will not make it.
However, Shane Ferguson, who also picked up an ankle injury in last Sunday’s game, will be fit, so it would appear Shane will get a start out on the left wing against West Brom.
And of course 20-year-old winger Kazenga LuaLua could also play out on the left wing, and is likely to see some action on Sunday afternoon as a sub.
Alan Pardew is anxious to finish what has been a successful season for Newcastle on a high, and he said this today:
“Unfortunately Jonas is out of Sunday, but Shane Ferguson will be fit, so we do have a few options.”
It’s unfortunate that Jonas will miss the game, but it will give the Newcastle fans another look at one of the brightest young prospects on Tyneside, and the lads will also be wearing their new home strips in the final game of the season.
