Eddie Howe provides update on Ryan Fraser’s fitness as Newcastle United duo Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson ‘on track’ to feature again this season

Eddie Howe has provided an update on Ryan Fraser’s recovery from a hamstring injury which saw him miss Sunday’s win.

Fraser hobbled off early on in the clash with Wolves, suffering from a hamstring injury which ended a fine-streak of performances for the winger.

Howe has revealed that Fraser will undergo another scan on the injury this week, meaning he will certainly miss the clash with Crystal Palace:

“I think with Ryan the plan is to have another scan of his hamstring this week, I’m not sure on the day, just to see where he’s at.

“We had an initial scan that had two conflicting opinions so we’re re-scanning it this week.”

Also missing the clash with Palace will be the duo of Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson who remain sidelined with long-term injuries.

On their recoveries, United’s head coach said: “They’re still on track, nothing has changed over the last few days. They’re still on track to hopefully play [again] this season.”
