Steve Bruce has given his press conference this morning. While the overall update on injuries is positive, two other Magpies are now out with injuries.
Both Ki Sung-yueng and DeAndre Yedlin have picked up knocks and are unavailable for Wolves tomorrow.
SB on returning players: "There's light at the end of the tunnel. I expect the vast majority, by the end of next week, to be there or thereabouts which is good." pic.twitter.com/IFeOPTigyq

While the Ki injury will not be too much of an issue, we are now down to just Emil Krafth at right wing-back with both Javier Manquillo and Yedlin ruled out.
It doesn’t sound too bad of an injury for the American. However, Newcastle have 3 games in the next 8 days and could again be left short defensively.
Though the revelation that the majority of injured players will be close to a return by the end of next week is very encouraging. Having Allan Saint-Maximin, Jamaal Lascelles, and Jonjo Shelvey for Chelsea next Saturday would be another massive boost for this team.
