‘Hearing more positive news’ – Journalist issues surprise injury update on two NUFC players

After initially claiming that Callum Wilson looked set to be missing for ‘months’ with a torn calf, The Mail’s Craig Hope has shared a much more promising update on his injury situation.

He claims that ‘slightly more positive news’ has emerged on the NUFC injury front, with it now believed that the striker could be missing for more like 4-6 weeks.

If this proves to be true and the recovery process goes well, he may end up missing just two league games against Watford (15th January) and Leeds (22nd January), with our trip to Southampton on Sunday in doubt, an FA Cup game falling the weekend after and an international break also scheduled the week after our trip to Leeds.

Craig Hope has also issued a positive update on the knock that forced Allan Saint-Maximin off in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Man Utd, stating that his calf problem ‘is not serious at all.’

Here’s what he’s had to say:

Hearing slightly more positive news on NUFC injuries. Wilson could be a month to six weeks out (still dependent on recovery), while Saint-Maximin calf problem is not serious at all.
