Wilson was forced off after scoring in yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Southampton at St James’s Park. Steve Bruce revealed after the game that Wilson had suffered a thigh injury in the Premier League game.

“Unfortunately, he’s got a thigh injury,” said United’s head coach.

The striker had needed treatment early in the game. He told NUFC TV: “I had a tight quad from the 10th, 11th minute in the game. I managed to get to half-time, then just managed it myself. I felt I was going to get a chance, so I wanted to stay on and give something back to the team.”

Wilson – who wasn’t involved in the club’s home midweek Carabao Cup defeat to Burnley – has scored two league goals so far this season. The 29-year-old now has the two-week international break to recover for the club’s September 11 game against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
