Newcastle United have suffered more injury woe this afternoon according to the Shields Gazette.
Left back Massadio Haidara reportedly twisted his knee in training today with boss Rafa Benitez unsure whether he will be back in time to play in Newcastle’s must-win match-up against Norwich City next weekend.
With Jack Colback unavailable to play following a yellow card suspension he picked up in the Tyne & Wear derby and first choice left back Paul Dummet still out with injury, this fresh injury concern leaves options very thin on the ground for the Magpies.
With centre back Chancel Mbemba’s return to the starting eleven last weekend, should Haidara not recover in time it is likely Spaniard Rafa Benitez will opt to play Jamaal Lascelles, Steven Taylor or Vurnon Anita in the left back position.
