Dubravka Explains The Situation Surrounding His Latest Foot Injury



Newcastle travel to the Keepmoat Stadium to take on Doncaster Rovers this Friday for a 7pm kick-off. There is still a limited number of tickets available for Newcastle fans.

This week there has been pretty much silence on the state of the squad after Sunday’s defeat at York City. Steve Bruce provided some updates after the match but there’s been little from the club this week other than the statement of adjourning the arbitration hearing.

For Friday’s friendly, we are not certain of the full scale of who Bruce will have at his disposal. Joelinton injured his thigh and was withdrawn after 17 minutes on Sunday. He’ll probably be unavailable even if it’s just precautionary.


Martin Dubravka, Elliot Anderson, and Jonjo Shelvey are all injured and in a struggle to be available for the start of this season. Dubravka will almost certainly miss the opener at West Ham and has given a lengthy explanation on his injury to Sport.SK.

It appears that Dubravka has been hobbled since his return from his previous foot injury last December. Though this time it doesn’t appear that it will keep him out as long. The Chronicle has published the following from Martin:

“I would love to start the first match of the new season.

“However, this is highly unlikely. The doctor told me that it was individual and that each patient responded differently.

“He has had a positive experience with me, as after the previous operation.

“Back then they predicted a two-month break for me, but I was back after three weeks.

“Now, the procedure may finally be longer than planned but it was important to solve the issue.

“I had a broken first metatarsal and I had a fragment there that needed to be removed.

“I have been feeling pain in my leg since last December.

“This was probably due to the fact that last year I had a torn tendon, so I loaded the foot differently than usual.

“I was constantly feeling uncomfortable in my football.

“The pain escalated, getting more and more intense.

“In the end, it turned out to be a fatigue fracture and surgery was necessary, otherwise it could leave even more negative traces.

“They have known since December that I have a problem and that it will have to be resolved.

“They saw how my condition developed. After the first week of the Euros, I was already catching with the help of drugs.

“However, this is no excuse, because I really wanted to complete the championship. After the tournament, the doctors told me to rest in particular.

“However, the pain did not subside, so I chose a different path. Before that, I tried all possible procedures, as at first, it didn’t seem like a fracture.

“I believed that a week by the sea with my family after the Euros would help me.

“It didn’t help either. I originally went to Prost?jov only for an injection, but the doctor x-rayed me thoroughly, did a magnet examination and then it turned out that the injection would not help.

“We wasted no time and I went to surgery four days after the diagnosis.”

Dan Langley will likely get the nod on Friday against Doncaster once again. Karl Darlow, Freddie Woodman, and Mark Gillespie are still self-isolating due to Darlow’s positive Covid test.

There’s no word on whether Miguel Almiron, Emil Krafth, or Fabian Schar have returned from their summer holidays after competing internationally last month. Though Bruce could certainly use Almiron on Friday with him being very short on midfielders.

Hopefully, we’ll get some updates from the club soon and possibly some photos of the lads in training. So far this week has been quite mum from the club.

    That Ajer is probably worse than what we’ve got anyway. He can’t be that good if only Brentford were interested.

    So, Man City have won the title twice while waiting for their PL case to be resolved , 3 years and two titles.
    i wonder what we will achieve while waiting for an outcome from either of our two cases.
    3 years and two relegations maybe.

    jon,
    I was at the 2003 Ashes in Sydney for one day, we just paid on the door. When it came to England in 2005 I thought it would be easy to get a ticket given how we just turned up in Sydney, the reason being is we were 4-0 down in the series. Brilliant day though. Still not as good as Durham in 2013 we got to the fourth day of the fourth test which we wrapped up the series. Unforgettable.

    Watched the highlights of the Harrogate V U23s, not a lot to see but the goal by Kyle Crossley was canny.

    Jake Turner our GK is a real monster though he totally dwarfed everyone else on the pitch.

    As I’ve said before, I asked admin to remove a link that led direct to somebodies real account, somebody that could have been anyone, a student who’s life and studies could have been affrected by a wolfpack hounding him. I did not ask for anyone to be banned and in 14 years of posting have never asked someone to be banned.

    It’s way too toxic on here now. It’s a real shame that people can’t get along and act like mature adults. I know I don’t post often but I do skim the blog and it’s embarrassing some of the stuff I’m reading.

    I feel sorry that the Harrisons have to put up with this nonsense. It makes me wonder what kind of revenue they get from keeping the blog going and if it’s even worth the hassle. It must feel like running a nursery at this point.

    I’ll check back in a few weeks to see if it’s settled down (which I’ve done before, but nothing changed) but I doubt it.

    All I’ll say is… think before you post. And try to resolve your disputes in a sensible manner without resorting to insults.

    Yeah, probably too tall and slow. Personally, I think we should keep Lejuene, Schar and Fernandez and sign another centre back. Get rid of Lascelles and Clark.
