It was a great win for Newcastle tonight, but there are now worries about two of our best players – Tim Krul and Yohan Cabaye.
Shola Ameobi – in action tonight – Shola score winner form penalty
Yohan Cabaye was replaced by Gael Bigirimana after 87 minutes and the French International seems to have sustained a knee injury, but just how bad that is we don’t know at the moment.
And Tim Krul was fouled in the last few minutes of the game and had to have treatment – and the reports coming out of Kharkiv say that he’s been spotted on crutches – so that doesn’t sound too good – although we don’t know how true that report is.
But we have to hope these two players are not too badly injured, but of course there’s little room for any recovery from injuries, since we kick off in less than 72 hours against Southampton on Sunday – in what is a crucial league game for us.
We hope there will be some news on the injuries before the night is out.
