'Finally Miggy' - Newcastle United fans react as Steve Bruce makes changes for Wolves clash
Steve Bruce has named his side to face Wolves this afternoon with Miguel Almiron starting for Newcastle United.
Jonjo Shelvey misses out, Steve Bruce revealed in the build-up to the game he has been carrying an injury.
Shelvey was disappointing in last weekend’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester United at St James’s Park. The 28-year-old midfielder, however, has been hampered by a groin injury in recent weeks, according to Bruce.
Speaking on Friday Bruce said: “He's had a sore groin now for the past two, three weeks – and tried to play with it. It's come to the stage where he's not going to be able to, but I've got nothing but the hugest respect for Jonjo.
