The Newcastle U21 team has a game tomorrow night at home to Derby County, and it looks like Siem de Jong will play in the game and maybe Rolando Aarons too.
Siem de Jong – will play tomorrow night
Siem has made a good recovery from his collapsed lung, and interim head coach John Carver has given a brief update this morning on both players and this is what he said:
“We’ve got a reserve game tomorrow night, and Siem de Jong will definitely play in that,” “I’m going to check on Rolando and see how he’s feeling.”
“If he’s up for it, we’ll give him some part of the game, but if not we’ll leave him alone for now.” “I can’t see, to be quite honest, either of them being available for Sunday.”
It would be great if we can get some class back into the side, and Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons are two of Newcastle’s more creative players.
So even if neither is available for the game at home to Tottenham on Sunday, having them back even for the last three or four games of the season would be good.
And we do have Papiss Cisse coming back for the last three games of the season, but Moussa Sissoko embarrassed himself last night by getting himself sent off at Anfield and adding to Newcastle’s woes.
Moussa will miss the next two games.
We are a little worried about Rolando having damaged his hamstrings this season, so if he breaks down again that would be a big problem for both him and for Newcastle United
