Luke Edwards has now dropped some big Newcastle United injury news on Callum Wilson.
The Lowdown: Stepping up recovery
Should Newcastle start Wilson?
The striker has joined the also injured Kieran Trippier on the the squad’s trip to Dubai, in the hope that his recovery can now be accelerated during the international break.
The Latest: Wilson twist
As per The Daily Telegraph journalist Edwards, Wilson now has an ‘outside chance’ of being involved at home to Wolves on April 8th, a big twist after it was originally expected that he would return more towards the end of the month:
“UPDATE Wilson has an outside chance of being involved against Wolves if his Achilles has no adverse reaction to training.
“But think it’s far more likely kept back for Palace and/or Norwich.”
The Verdict: Big boost
It would certainly be a big boost for the North East club if Wilson were to return as early as against Wolves, given the original timeframe for his recovery.
That would mean that Eddie Howe would have him available for their last eight games of the Premier League season, which could be pivotal in terms of their hopes for survival.
Amazingly, Wilson still remains their top scorer in all competitions this campaign despite being out injured for the last couple of months, and so the Tyneside outfit will need his goals in order to make sure that they pick up another great run of form after a couple of disappointing results.
