NUFC suffer new injury in 5-1 defeat at Middlesbrough as 8 players miss training on Thursday

With Martin Dubravka and Dwight Gayle picking up ‘2-3 month’ injuries over pre-season already, the last thing we need is another player sidelined ahead of the new season.

While there’s been no confirmation on the extent, The Mail’s Craig Hope reports that Paul Dummett limped off in Tuesday’s 5-1 defeat at Middlesbrough shortly after coming on in the 60th minute.

Hope also stated that the ‘couple of fresh knocks’ picked up in the game may have something to do with the club’s decision to cancel Monday’s rematch with Boro at our Benton training base.

It’s also feared Ciaran Clark was one of the others who picked up a ‘knock’ in the thrashing on Tuesday, with it worth noting that both he and Paul Dummett were not present in any of the clubs 48 training photos released on Thursday afternoon.

Others who missed training are injured duo Martin Dubravka and Dwight Gayle, while Jeff Hendrick – who started against Bulgaria for the Republic of Ireland on Thursday night – and Emil Krafth were both missing for international duty.

Elsewhere, Joelinton and Muto returned to training on Thursday and Fabian Schar was spotted doing light work after a shoulder operation, but forgotten duo Rolando Aarons and Achraf Lazaar remain nowhere to be seem, with both appearing to have been told to stay away and find new clubs.

Let’s hope Dummett’s withdrawal was purely precautionary and that Clark is OK too. After all, they’re just about our only two options at left-back as things stand!

  1. Sounds like 2 injuries but no confirmation from the club. 8 may have not been present at training but if Clark and Dummnet are injured again not long after coming back from injuries that’s 4. Yeah it’s not good but wasn’t the good news that we had 2 more back. joelinton was supppsed to be missing according to the media but was probably having a few days off.
    Hendricks played 90 minutes in his international tonight and Fraser is on the verge of signing with Holding not far behind and then Wilson.
    Hopefully your articles are correct and we are from the runners for Fraser and Wilson.
