Newcastle United have issued a statement regarding goalkeeper’s Tim Krul’s injury – and he will be seeing an ankle specialist before any more updates are given.
Tim Krul after the game last night
There had been a news report on BBC Radio Newcastle that Tim would be out for five weeks, and probably in response to the new bulletin Newcastle have issued the following statement on their web-site
Newcastle United can confirm that Tim Krul was assessed by Club medical staff on Friday and sent for a scan on Friday afternoon after sustaining an ankle injury in Thursday night’s Europa League match against Metalist Kharkiv in the Ukraine. Krul is now scheduled to see an ankle specialist on Monday for a further assessment, after which time the Club should be able to provide another update.
But of course this means that Tim is not playing on Sunday and we’ll see who gets the nod between the experienced Steve Harp and Rob Elliot – and both are good goalkeepers.
