Rafa Benitez has just completed his press conference for the Championship game at Wolverhampton Wanderers late tomorrow afternoon – and we need another win in the game to stay top of the Championship in what will be a very tough game.
Rafa has given an update on the injuries and he says everybody is very close now apart from Rolando Aarons and Vurnon Anita.
As far as Dwight Gayle is concerned he says he is now very very close and has completed some training sessions.

Some of Rafa’s comments are now being reported on the Newcastle United Twitter account and on Chronicle Live.
Here are some of Rafa’s comments in no particular order:
“Almost everybody is available now. Anita and Rolando are out but everybody else is pushing.”
“Dwight Gayle has completed some training sessions, so he’s very very close now.”
“When you play away, everybody wants to beat you. But we are ready, top and we are happy – but it’s difficult.”
“It’s important to just concentrate on one game at a time. The other teams will be pushing and pushing.”
“Hanley is doing well. He has experience in the Championship, he is perfect for that because he helps the team spirit.”
