Sky Sports Journalist Adds Second Magpie To Miss Rest Of Season

Keith Downie has just tweeted that both Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett will miss the remainder of this season.

Earlier this morning, Lee Ryder tweeted that reports from the Netherlands indicated Jetro’s knee injury against Chelsea would force him to miss the rest of this season.

Now that information has been confirmed by Sky Sports, but Downie has also said that Paul Dummett will be out as well.

Dummett had just returned from a hamstring injury to face Wolves a few weeks ago. He had missed the previous three matches. However, he lasted all of 12 minutes before injuring his other hamstring. This time it’s a severe one as it looks like he’ll be out for the rest of this season.

Steve Bruce will almost certainly have to bring someone in at left wing-back with just Matt Ritchie who can play there. With both Willems and Dummett not able to play anymore this season, that should open up a couple of squad places for potential incomings.

We expect to get more information on both Dummett and Willems as well as a transfer update from Bruce’s press conference scheduled for noon.

    Keith Downie
    Steve Bruce confirms he’s in talks with Inter over a loan move for winger Valentino Lazaro. He says he hopes to know more in the next 24 hours but is frustrated it got out over the weekend

    Two left sided defenders out, let’s go for a right sided winger.

    Can’t score, sign a goalie

    So this is a real test to see if Bruce can really get Ashley to play ball!

    Dummett and Willems great servants for us and hope they recover well!

    Need to de select them from the squad pool and quickly bring in two players to fill it up then we need to get rid of Ki if we aren’t going to play him and get another body in!

    For me its a big risk relying on Lejuene, Clark and Richie coming back from injury and then just playing them every week everyone knows what will happen so we need a utility player who can play left back and centre half can’t think of a player at the moment!

    We needed a central midfielder and a striker regardless of these injuries so we still need to get them! Not sure where Valentino is going to play considering we have Manquillo , Krafth and Yedlin all playing RWB?

    Might be a good idea to draft one or two of the youngsters into the squad who are under 21

    Valentino Lazaro.
    Frustrated it got out ?
    His agent was sat next to Chumless at the match.
    Or was it Barnes, the Christopher Biggins look a like competition winner.

    I’m surprised it’s taken so long for teams to work it out but it’s just as well.

    Rather than get sucker punched they might just rock up and stay back themselves and play for the draw, leaving us to try our hand at coming out at them and getting stretched or suffer many draws and not get enough points to stay up.

    If you are a fan from another premier club ignore all that. Welshie you’re ok read on son. 😉

    He will be better than Ki.
    Surely he is on his way.
    Plays when he feels like it.
    About 4 months in the last 18.

    Reilly “(Bruce) is frustrated it got out over the weekend”

    Well, they’d be better off not inviting the guy’s agent over for the match, then….

    I bet Ritchie is secretly happy, perfect timing for him, really will miss Willems, him and Saint Max down that side together

    That is a point.
    If both teams sat back in their own half you would not have a match at all.
    Like in boxing when both fighters are not throwing punches. The ref steps in and says get your act together the fans have paid to see a fight not a dance.

    A solution if it gets too bad. No points for a draw. Team with the most corners gets the points.

    Long time ago but is that not why they brought in 3 points for a win instead of two.
    Game now less of an entertainment. Will get really bad before they change.
