Newcastle: Frank McAvennie reacts to injury updates

Newcastle: Frank McAvennie reacts to injury updates -Newcastle United News

Pundit Frank McAvennie has been reacting to updates on Newcastle duo Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson, as per Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Trippier and Wilson updates

The Magpies have headed to Dubai during the international break for a warm-weather training camp.

Wilson has been out since December with a calf problem, while Trippier has been sidelined since February following a metatarsal fracture, although both players made the trip to Dubai along with another long-term injury victim Federico Fernandez.

Eddie Howe is hopeful that both Wilson and Trippier will return to action before the end of the season after making returns to training.

The Latest: McAvennie reacts

Speaking to Football Insider, McAvennie labelled the pair’s return to training as ‘incredible’, adding that it is an ‘exciting time’ for both players. The 62-year-old said:

“Newcastle have done so well to keep winning without those players.

“Tripper was so, so good before his injury and we all know how good Wilson is on his day.

“He’s still their top scorer. It’s incredible to see them both working to be back and Newcastle have a decent end to the season.

“I think they just need one or two more wins to really secure their safety.

“Then you are looking at how high they can finish, getting into the top 10 is not out of the question for me.

“It’s an exciting time for them and I’m sure the fans can’t wait to see those guys back.”

The Verdict: Almost safe for another year

Newcastle have enjoyed a fine start to 2022, picking up 20 points from a possible 30 to leave them nine points clear of the bottom three with nine games remaining.

They have coped without Wilson, but having him back to challenge Chris Wood in attack will be a huge boost. Trippier’s return will also be a welcome one given his impressive early impact, but Howe will need to be cautious with the pair in the final weeks of the season given how long they have been sidelined.

Hopefully the Magpies will be all but safe before the two players make full recoveries, but only time will tell whether or not that proves to be the case.
