Callum Wilson is in with an ‘outside chance’ of returning in time for our crucial trip to Brighton later this month.
This is according to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, who also reveals that there has been some ‘relief behind the scenes’ that Miguel Almiron will only be missing for a month – with some initially fearing he’d suffered a season ending knee injury.
Back to Wilson, Edwards insists that Steve Bruce is reluctant to rush our top scorer back and aggravate his recovery from a hamstring injury, however it seems he could yet be back in time for our trip to The Amex.
The 29-year-old is said to be making good progress in the gym and revealed in a podcast last week how ‘desperate’ he is to get fit and fire us to safety.
Considering Almiron and Saint-Maximin have already been ruled out of our trip to the South Coast, it would be a huge boost to have Wilson back for a potential relegation six pointer at Brighton.
However, if there’s any risk involved and he’s not 100% ready to return, you’d like to think we’d save him for the remaining 10 games of the season – starting with Spurs at St James’ Park on April 3rd.
