On the back of a stunning 3-0 loss to local rivals Sunderland – the news gets even worse for Newcastle, as Tim Krul is out for the season.
Tim Krul – in pain this afternoon – out for the season
The Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has told the press that Tim Krul has dislocated his shoulder , and after being back only four games from his ankle injury he sustained against Metalist Kharkiv – - he will miss the rest of the season.
Tim fell awkwardly when trying to get to a cross after 55 minutes of the game this afternoon against Sunderland, and it seems he fell on his shoulder and it’s dislocated.
Rob Elliot will come back into the side in place of Krul – for the remaining five league games of the season – and Newcastle still have some points to collect to be safe from relegation.
We are 5 points clear of the drop zone but third bottom Wigan now have two games in hand on Newcastle – and two wins will take them above us in the league table.
It never rains but it pours.
