Some much needed good news on the Newcastle injuries front this afternoon.

Daryl Janmaat is now reported to be fine for the trip to Liverpool next Monday night, as John Carver hopes to improve a record of only 2 wins in 13 matches so far.

The Dutch full-back turned centre-half was feared to have a tear in his calf, picked up in the warm-up at the Sadium of Light.

However, the Shields Gazette though say that those initial fears of possibly missing the game at Anfield have proved unfounded.

Coloccini will serve the final match of his three game suspension on Monday, with a return for Spurs the following Sunday.

Whether anybody else will be available for the game at Liverpool is anybody’s guess.

You would assume that by then Mehdi Abeid should be able to play after having returned to the bench on Sunday, though it is a bit strange that he didn’t play at least some part in the reserve game against Middlesbrough last night.

Likewise, Rolando Aarons didn’t feature last night either, he trained through last week and with another week of work hopefully he will also be able to be included in the squad that travel to Merseyside.

    Good news with Abeid and Aarons…now the fat lad can use end of season to put them in shop window

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Aarons is suffering from that dreaded NUFC injury – contractual inflation. Won’t be seen again until his symptoms subside.

  • Hughie

    They won’t play–injuries at NUFC are interminable.

    I´m disappointed !!!
    I was hoping the good news on injuries was:
    Ashley admitted to hospital with chronic pie eating disorder and while he´s there they´l also operate to remove Charnley from his backside (where he´s been since being appointed chief boot licker).

    The other part of the good news would be Carver finally chokes on his verbal dhiarrheoa and is admitted for dysentry !!!

    Ah well, another disappointing headline !!!

    Does anybody else just want to tell Aaron’s to fcuk off. How long for a hamstring 5 months? They come back from broken legs quicker.
