Coloccini Out Today Plus Other Injury/Fitness News

9 years ago

I had a bad feeling about our captain after the match at Old Trafford, despite positive noises about his fitness in spite of the news that he’d felt a ‘bit sore’.

Now it has been confirmed that Fabricio Coloccini definitely misses today and will be lucky to make next Sunday’s match against Manchester United.

While the news is a bit more positive concerning Danny Simpson and Yohan Cabaye, with Alan Pardew explaining exactly what was up with the midfielder and his teeth;

“Coloccini is sweating for Manchester United but Danny Simpson’s got a good chance for that match. I think Cabaye should be ok for Thursday (Bordeaux) but Coloccini and him aren’t playing (against Reading).

Cabaye has an abscess on his wisdom teeth and an infection that is affecting his body a little bit”.

Much like early September it looks like Newcastle will be welcoming this international break to hopefully get the likes of Coloccini, Cabaye, Simpson and Tim Krul  properly fit.

In the meantime a win against reading would be a massive boost which would then make anything off Manchester United a bonus next weekend.
