Steve Bruce gives an update on Newcastle’s point man as the Magpies battle it out


Steve Bruce gives an update on the fitness of Newcastle's key forward for next weekend

Callum Wilson remains a doubt for next weekend

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce gave an update on several of his foot injuries following the 4-1 beating of the Magpies at Old Trafford by Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United, including news on key forward Callum Wilson.

Wilson was one of six Newcastle players to miss out on Ronaldo’s second United debut that saw the Portuguese icon take a double, and Bruce hasn’t given an overly positive update on the England man, who is currently “touch and go” for next weekend according to the director of Magpies.

“I can’t put a time scale on it. It will be easy when I’m ready for next week. “

The England international was instrumental for Newcastle early in the campaign, scoring two goals in the first three games of the season after scoring against West Ham on Matchday 1 and Southampton on Matchday 3. Despite their goals, Bruce’s men have earned just one point in the opening gates, and after today’s tough loss, they boast the worst defensive record in the Premier League.

Newcastle injury bug highlights lack of investment in summer

With six first-team players on the injury table today, Newcastle are already at the center of the relegation dogfight after just four weeks of Premier League action and have already made themselves compete without key players.

Aside from the aforementioned Wilson, Ryan Frasier, Martin Dúbravka and Jonjo Shelvey have all been affected by injury problems, among other teammates who have spent time on the treatment table.

As options are already beginning to diminish, the question surrounding Newcastle this season will undoubtedly once again fall on the fact that the club failed to improve roster depth in the summer, aside from a successful deal to Joe Willock of Arsenal, and Bruce recently reflected on that. very problematic in admitting that you “will never be satisfied” with the state of your options at St. James’ Park.
