Steve Bruce provides updates on Callum Wilson, Fabian Schar & more ahead of Newcastle vs Wolves

Newcastle vs Wolves

Saturday’s Premier League action will draw to a close in the North East, when Newcastle welcome Wolves to St James’ Park.

Newcastle head into the weekend’s action very much in the relegation scrap.

The Magpies currently sit just three points clear of 18th-placed Fulham, with a much worse goal difference than Scott Parker’s side.

Fulham also have a very winnable match against Crystal Palace to come this weekend, meaning Newcastle can not really afford to drop points against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

That will be easier said than done, though, as Wolves finally appear to be finding some form amid a fairly poor campaign as a whole.

The Molineux outfit are unbeaten in their last four league outings, three of which saw them pick up victories, to climb up to 12th in the table.

Steve Bruce gives Newcastle injury update

Ahead of Saturday’s game, Steve Bruce held his latest pre-match press conference on Friday.

And, during the presser, the Newcastle boss provided updates on the fitness of several players.

Bruce confirmed that Fabian Schar is still on crutches, whilst Callum Wilson is three or four weeks away from a return:

“Manquillo is doing very well with his ankle. Fabian Schär is still on crutches and a knee brace. Callum Wilson is now three or four weeks away so he’s making good progress but it’s a muscle injury so we have to box clever with it.”

Elsewhere, Joelinton is said to be ‘OK’, and though Federico Fernandez has been training, the Wolves tie may come too soon for the defender:

“Joelinton is OK. Federico Fernández has trained all week but tomorrow still might be a bit too early for him. We have no new injuries.”
