Surprise – Newcastle Star Will LIkely Miss Cardiff Game


With Rafa’s comments about Dwight Gayle today it seems almost certain that the Newcastle manager will not risk the 26 year-old who has just been named The Championship Player of the Month for October.

It looks like Rafa will stay with the in-form Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic for the home game against Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.

Dwight Gayle – will likely miss Cardiff City game

Rafa Benitez has confirmed the former Crystal Palace striker is  back with the first team squad in training and said this about Gayle today:

“He was training but we have to be cautious with him; we will see in two or three days,”

“We have some time and we will see how he feels. At the moment he is training and improving little by little.”

If Dwight is rested for Saturday it will give him plenty of time before our next game at Leeds United on November 20th to ensure his hamstring is OK.

Dwight has had problems before with his hamstrings so given the good form of Mitro it seems sensible to rest Dwight for the upcoming game and give the in-form Serbian another start in front of the home supporters.

Matt Ritchie is suspended for this game after picking up 5 yellow cards so it looks like Christian Atsu will get a start and maybe Ayoze Perez too.

What do you think?
