Newcastle United: Joe Willock, Ciaran Clark and Ryan Fraser train

Newcastle United: Joe Willock, Ciaran Clark and Ryan Fraser train -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have now been gifted a triple injury boost before their game at home against Leeds United in the Premier League on Friday night.

The Lowdown: Injury concerns

Speaking in his post-match press conference after his team lost 4-1 away at Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, Steve Bruce said that both Joe Willock and Ciaran Clark had picked up knocks.

Should Newcastle have signed Willock?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Ryan Fraser limped out of Scotland’s team hotel with a large protective boot and crutches during the international break (talkSPORT), which certainly would have worried Bruce ahead of his side’s return.

The Latest: Training images

As per the official website of the St. James’ Park faithful, latest images from the training ground showed Willock, Clark and Fraser, with the former two ‘appearing to have overcome’ the knocks that they picked up at Old Trafford last weekend.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

Bruce has also confirmed in his pre-game press conference that Fraser is ‘OK’ and has ‘put himself in contention’ to play against the Whites, while both Willock and Clark have also ‘come through’.

The Verdict: Boost

It is certainly a boost that all three players have returned to training, and Bruce will no doubt be desperate that they will be fit enough and available for selection.

With Callum Wilson now out injured, the Tyneside outfit may have to rely on players like Willock for goals, and the former Arsenal midfield player showed that he is more than capable of scoring during his loan spell last season (Transfermarkt).

Nonetheless, the Magpies will desperately want to get all three points on the board, and will hope that Willock, Clark and Fraser can help them get them.
