Newcastle injury crisis deepens as pair forced off vs Wolves


Newcastle United’s meeting with Wolves this afternoon saw the club’s already staggering injury list lengthened further.

Wolves 1-1 Newcastle

Steve Bruce’s men visited Molineux a short time ago, for their latest Premier League outing.

The Magpies headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, on the back of a disappointing spell of form of late.

Newcastle had failed to secure a win in any of their preceding 4 outings across all competitions, with their latest Premier League matchup having seen the Geordie outfit put to the sword by 3 goals to nil at home to Leicester.

As such, ahead of kick-off today, Bruce’s outfit sat just 5 points clear of the relegation zone.

When all was said and done at Molineux, however, while Newcastle failed to get back to winning ways, they did pick up an impressive point.

The visitors took the lead with just 7 minutes on the clock, through the in-form Miguel Almiron.

Leander Dendoncker, though, pulled Wolves level inside the opening quarter of an hour, setting up what looked set to be a goal-packed affair.

In the end, however, the hosts’ equaliser surprisingly proved the end of the goal-scoring in the West Midlands, as both sides were forced to settle for a point.

Dummett & Gayle blows

While the result proved a largely positive one for Newcastle this afternoon, however, their staggering woes on the personnel front continued.

The Magpies’ meeting with Leicester last time out saw a quartet of the club’s stars forced off over the course of the 90 minutes due to respective fitness concerns.

And it took just 11 minutes for another to follow suit this afternoon, as defender Paul Dummett made way for Florian Lejeune:

Then, bafflingly, a quarter of an hour later, yet another of Newcastle’s stars went to ground.

The individual on this occasion was Dwight Gayle, with a hamstring problem having eventually seen the hitman limp off to be replaced by Christian Atsu:

Steve Bruce has since spoken out over the injury crisis riddling his squad, confirming that, as things stand, he is without the services of ’12 or 13′ players:
