Both Newcastle and Wolves will be trying to stop losing runs in the league on Saturday at Molineux. Wolves have lost their last two Premier League matches, away to both Liverpool and Watford. They also only managed a draw in the FA Cup this past weekend, but that was against Manchester United.
Newcastle are winless in the last three in the league and failed to get the job done at Rochdale in a 1-1 draw. We now sit just five points above 18th place Bournemouth in the table but are only five points from Wolves, who are in seventh.
We’ve received a massive fitness boost this week with six injured players involved in full training in Miguel Almiron, Ciaran Clark, Andy Carroll, Paul Dummett, Dwight Gayle, and Jetro Willems.
While it looks like this match may be too soon for Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin, they are making progress. Saint-Maximin has been running while Lascelles is in Dubai as he gets closer to making his return.
Steve Bruce should be able to select a strong team with the six players returning as well as having Matt Ritchie back. However, the next week is going to another tough one with three matches, including the FA Cup replay on Tuesday and at home against Chelsea on Tuesday.
Hopefully, we’ll see a reaction from the lads on Saturday at Wolves, and they can pick up a result. Wolves are an excellent side who picked up a point at St James Park earlier this season. Maybe we can do at least the same at Molineux.
