Paul Dummett has missed the last two games for Newcastle with a hamstring injury, and he has wisely withdrawn from Welsh squad to face Spain and the Republic of Ireland.
Paul instead will have treatment at Benton, and hopefully, he will not be out too long.
But Paul has suffered quite a few hamstring injuries in his career, and that’s what he picked up in the first game of last season which kept him out for several months.
Dummett’s withdrawal is said to be precautionary which may mean it’s only a slight injury and he could be fit enough to face Brighton at home on 20th October.
Paul Dummett – will continue to have treatment on his hamstring injury
Paul is a steady left-back and it’s thought a high priority in January is to bring in an attacking left back to challenge Paul for the starting position at Newcastle.
Dummett picked up his third cap in the game against Ireland last month in Cardiff in the UEFA Nations League.
Paul had withdrawn from International football altogether because he didn’t play much at all.
It looks like Paul will get more caps under new Welsh manager Ryan Giggs who seems to rate Dummett highly.
Let’s hope the local lad is ready for Brighton a week on Saturday.
