'Finally Miggy' - Newcastle United fans react as Steve Bruce makes changes for Wolves clash
and live on Freeview channel 276
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.
"He's a very, very good player, and most players wouldn't be playing with the injury that he's played with.”
Here's the best of the social media reaction to the team news:
Tomoring tweeted: “Wilson Masterclass.”
6IXGOAT tweeted: “MIGGY AND FRASER FINALLY”
Adam added: “Happy with that like!”
Meanwhile, Beth tweeted: “MIGGY FRASER WILSON ASM”
Bader Marafi added: “Finally Miggy”
Though some supporters have been left wondering what the formation will be.
TalkNUFC tweeted: “What’s the formation? #nufc”
Grant Naylor added: “Our line up alone is a clear indication that Bruce just doesn’t have a clue who’s playing where? CB in CM with 2 CM on the bench? #nufc”
Our NUFC writer Miles Starforth cleared up the confusion, he tweeted: “Steve Bruce has gone with a back five, with Jacob Murphy playing as a wing-back. #nufc”
