Howe Provides Update From Dubai on Injured Magpies

 Howe Provides Update From Dubai on Injured Magpies

The Telegraph stated yesterday that Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier would return from their long-term ailments in time for the Crystal Palace match on April 20th at St. James’ Park.

As Newcastle continue their training camp in warmer climates, Eddie Howe has delivered an update from Dubai. Both Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier are expected to return to play in four weeks, according to the manager.

Here is what Howe said about the duo:

“I’d say they’re on schedule from where they were given their respective injuries, but I wouldn’t say necessarily ahead of schedule. They’re both serious injuries, both enough to obviously be operated on and go through a very intense rehab period.

“Callum’s injury, you have to be very careful with; that we don’t push him back too quickly and he ends up injuring himself again, because the Achilles/calf is a very delicate area of the body and you need to make sure it’s robust enough to withstand heavy load.

“Kieran’s is slightly different. (It’s) a bone injury and I think, touch wood, if he can come through the early stages of coming out in his boots and then progressing quite quickly, he’s one we could see back in action hopefully pretty soon.

“But with both injuries, I do think we have to be very cautious. We don’t want to re-injure the player.”

Having both Callum and Kieran back for the final six games of the season might be crucial for Newcastle. While the team has performed admirably in their absence, several flaws emerged in the second half at Goodison Park.

Newcastle fell far short of the bar we set against them during our incredible journey up the league table. Howe has two and a half weeks to prepare for our next encounter, which will be against Tottenham Hotspur.

The goal is that this week in Dubai will help the team recuperate ahead of the challenging final stretch. Newcastle are still in 14th place, nine points clear of the relegation zone. However, if the losses continue to accumulate, this might alter quickly.
