Newcastle United have confirmed that attackers Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin will be ruled out until April after the duo were injured in Saturday’s game against Wolves.
The Magpies confirmed on their official website that both players picked up injuries in last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, further adding to Steve Bruce’s injury woes at Newcastle.
The Toon currently have top goalscorer Callum Wilson also out on the injury table, with the England international not likely to return to action until next month as reported by The Newcastle Chronicle.
This latest injury blow for Newcastle will do little to improve supporters hope of remaining in the Premier League for next season, with the Magpies just three points off the relegation zone and with just two wins from their last ten league games.
With relegation rivals West Brom coming up next for Newcastle in the league, Bruce has lost two key players at the worst possible time for the northeast club, with fixtures against Aston Villa and Tottenham also on the horizon which could define the Toon’s Premier League survival as we head into the running.
Almiron and Saint-Maximin have been two of Newcastle’s most important attacking players this season, with the duo managing six goals and four assists between them in the Premier League this campaign, and with Wilson also out of action for the next few weeks, the Magpies could struggle in the attack in the coming games.
