Newcastle United: Fans react as Steve Bruce confirms Allan Saint-Maximin and Andy Carroll are fit

Loads of Newcastle United supporters have been reacting on social media, after Steve Bruce confirmed that Allan Saint-Maximin and Andy Carroll are fit to face Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday during his pre-game press conference, via Sky Sports’ Keith Downie.

Carroll is yet to make his second Magpies debut following his return to the North East outfit on deadline day as a free agent after being released by West Ham United, as the Toon product has been recovering from ankle surgery.

Providing he comes through training on Friday morning unscathed, the Gateshead-born forward will be in line for a role in Bruce’s plans at the weekend, but it remains to be seen to what capacity he features.

The 30-year-old has not taken to the field since February 27 (TransferMarkt), in what was only his third start of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

As for Saint-Maximin, the French winger is also due to be named in Bruce’s 18-man matchday squad when Graham Potter’s Seagulls travel to St. James’ Park on Saturday evening.

There were concerns on Tyneside that Saint-Maximin faced a further month on the sidelines after aggravating the hamstring injury he sustained earlier in the season (Chronicle), but may now be awarded his third Newcastle appearance (TransferMarkt).

The 22-year-old has so far played just 40 minutes in Black and White since his £16.5m (BBC) move from OGC Nice in the summer.

Here’s how these Newcastle fans reacted to word that Carroll and Saint-Maximin are in line for a role in Bruce’s plans against Brighton on Saturday…
