Bruce Gives Injury Update For Star Seen Leaving Stadium On Crutches


Early in the game, Jamaal Lascelles reacted brilliantly to chase down a released Callum Wilson. Jamaal was able to catch the striker as they then both jockeyed for position.

As it became clear that Jamaal had won the battle, Wilson gave him a shove in the back that sent him straight into a prone Martin Dubravka.

As he collided with Dubravka, Jamaal injured his right knee while Martin was left sprawled out on the pitch.

Both players received treatment but were able to continue. However, fifteen minutes later Lascelles would have to come off to be replaced by Paul Dummett.

We now must play the waiting game to find out how severe the injury is. The fact that he was able to run around a bit and walk off under his own power signals that it should not be a serious issue.

Steve Bruce also spoke about his captain’s injury after the match and did not seem too concerned:

“I’ll not know until the relevant scans, but for him to come off?

“He’s walked off, so we don’t think he’s too serious, but until the relevant scans and X-rays and all the rest of it, then we’ll not no much until Monday, Tuesday.”

The Chronicle are reporting that Lascelles left the stadium on crutches with a brace on his right leg. He will be assessed by medical staff this weekend, but as Bruce said, they may not have any information on the condition of the knee until early next week.

Jamaal has been a mainstay at the back for Newcastle since being handed the captain’s armband in 2016. He’s started at least 30 games in the Premier League over the past two seasons as well as all 12 games this term.

While Jamaal was spotted with crutches, the early indications are that it’s just a knock. However, Fabian Schar has missed the last three games with what was said to be a minor knee problem.

At this point, it’s hard to speculate if Jamaal will miss any games. But we anticipate that Jamaal will be ready for the trip to Aston Villa in two weeks.

    I think the best cb 3 at the club would be

    Schar Fernandez Lejuerne

    So Lascelles bring out Won’t be an issue. Not sure how in the world you could drop Clarke either but Lejuerne is the best cb we have in my opinion.

    Jane,

    While that article gives a good background on Nickson (and I don’t doubt his credentials or ability)….it doesn’t actually answer the question that was posed.

    Charlie,

    I thought dummett looked a bit rusty when he first came on (kinda of expected really)
    But he grew into the game….and as you would expect, made some very important blocks & tackles. His distribution is fairly predictable (but that’s never gonna change)

    “Although ability and potential ability are important when it comes to assessing prospective signings, which new head coach Steve Bruce has the final say on, character and how players deal with adversity are crucial to Nickson and his scouts, too.”

    whether that’s true or not that’s what it says. the final say will probably be more like ‘yes i agree’.

    the head coach hasn’t really got the time or knowledge to look extensively and in-depth for new players.

    Genjikia

    Well done today and You too Carltoon

    Genjikia that land at Strawberry place is still verging on town moor land ..and that’s for the public ..public amenity ..to get that development stopped there should be an appeal from the public as it’s public amenity land .

    There’s got to be an old law and a loophole to get the development stopped .

    Think the Freemen of Newcastle should have a say in this serious matter .

    If the planning permission had went the other way you can be 100% sure the developers would have appealed to the Secretary of state to reverse the decision .

    Only in Newcastle could this happen !

    A Football Club in a Major UK City that helps drive community and sport, massively, and helps support many bussinesses in and around the city has come secondary in this disgusting planning decision ! and over an institution of the City of Newcastle and known world wide that has been in exsistence for well over 100 years.

    Like I say , only in Newcastle could this happen with its lower middle class social climbing pack of transient miserable b’stards that we entrust to speak for and act on and behalf of the people of Newcastle ..they have seriously let us down ..this decision needs challenged and the planning committee investigated ..

    How many of them have leanings towards Wearside?

    The decision stinks and an appeal to the Secretary of state to look at this is of vital importance .

    And while I’m on about it what the hell is feasible development ? Smacks of manipulation and lies.

    Newcastle city council hang your heads in deep deep shame, you have ignored the will of the people of Newcastle and area over a bunch of profiteering developers from the south and at the same time lining Mike Ashleys pockets to the tune of £9 million pounds and counting .

    This would never have happened with Liverpool city council , they know and realise how important Liverpool football club is to their city .

    To compromise further expansion to St’James’ Park, and more likely, have stopped it alltogether and not realising or ignoring the importance of that expansion for future generations is short term thinking coupled with false economy .

    I think the backgrounds of the 7 people who voted for this development should now become public domain.

    Shame on you Newcastle City Council.

    Jane,

    I wasn’t doubting that……nickson has final say on who is recommended.the manager (or head coach) has final say on who is signed.

    There’s an awful lot of things go on between 🙂

    Didn’t Son get a red, even though it was reversed for, and I’m paraphrasing ‘ a deliberate act that resulted in an injury to another player’?

    I thought that Hayden was sure to come off with his injury and that Matty was going to replace him but all credit to Isaac he toughed it out.

    Don’t think there was any drop in performance at the back when Dummett came on for Jamal which shows we now have strength in depth at the back, gonna be a bit of a headache for Brucie when everyone is fit.

    And yes it does look at times that Jonjo is strolling around but watch any game and you will see that happening with most players, do people expect him to be running full tilt every minute of every game, unless they’re a super charged Paraguayan it aint gonna happen. 🙂

    Thought Dummet was excellent when he came on. Jonjo was very good second half. OLG yes at last met Genjikai, you couldn’t miss him with a banner right across the street with Mike Ashley stripping. Really nice lad very polite and tall.

    Great result today, in the type of game where we’ve traditionally struggled in recent seasons – namely a home match vs a team in and around the same area of the table as us. We’ve been expected to keep possession and attack to break the opposition down, which doesn’t suit us, and today we didn’t bother. We ceded possession and counter-attacked to good effect. We were worthy winners in the end.

    Much is being made of the attacking three not scoring, but I think we have to give credit to Bruce and his coaches. They have recognised that goal scoring is not the strength of any of our front three, so have given them the task of getting the team up the field and securing dead ball possession. Once there, they have worked on set piece routines that will give us opportunities to score goals and they’ve worked. This is not an accident, it’s a deliberate tactic in my eyes. Maybe an outdated tactic, but it’s working at the moment, so how outdated can it actually be?

    The goal that Clark scored came from the exact same routine as Fernandes’ goal last week – Shelvey short corner to St Maxi, to Willems who knocks the ball to the back post. Not sure how it foxes the opposition defence so completely, but it evidently does so it’s fine by me.

    Bruce has experimented with his team while he got to know them, figured out their strengths and weaknesses and now seems to have a settled set of tactics to get the best out of the team. That’s actually good coaching and good discipline from the players to transfer the theory into practice, though it led to a couple of poor results and performances, particularly vs Norwich and Leicester, while they worked on it. I was a big sceptic of Bruce, but at this point I’m feeling differently – he’s doing well.

    Obviously his progress so far needs to be maintained and built upon. It’s a terrible shame that Rafa was not able to build on the foundations he’d built up to the end of last season, but I’m interested to see how Bruce can take things forward from here and I’m hopeful that the team can continue to improve individually and as a collective.

    There are obvious improvements to make, one obviously being the finishing of the forwards. If they can get some confidence (and some luck – reference Almiron hitting a prone St Maxi and the ball looping over the bar today) then I think that will improve drastically. How many times have we hit the woodwork this season? It seems like we do it most games.

    Anyway, there are obvious long-term issues with the club which are ongoing and which we would all like to see sorted, but on the field things seem to be looking up, and that bodes well for the immediate future at least. The players even seem to be enjoying themselves, which is fantastic.
