Newcastle United dealt fresh £32m double injury concern as player deemed 'unusable'

Newcastle United injuries: Eddie Howe has confirmed fresh fitness concerns for Callum Wilson and Jacob Murphy.

Newcastle United picked up three points at Nottingham Forest but suffered two fresh injury blows on their visit to the City Ground.

Two goals from Bruno Guimaraes and another from Fabian Schar saw The Magpies claim a 3-2 win over Forest. Newcastle winger Jacob Murphy suffered a calf injury in the warm-up ahead of the match while Callum Wilson was struggling with his arm in the closing stages of the win.

Afterwards, Magpies boss Eddie Howe told The Gazette: "Slight concern for us after the game. His shoulder is fine but there looks to be a problem with one of the muscles in his arm. We’re hopeful it’s not serious but at this moment we don’t know.” On Murphy, Howe added: "Jacob Murphy was unusable for us today. He didn’t feel great in the warm-up. So we’re still getting challenges left, right and centre but we’re, at this moment in time, managing to come through those.

"Today was a massive result for us, it gives us a real big high off the back of last week where there were so many positives but ultimately a disappointing result. The players just keep giving more and I couldn’t be prouder."

The win at Forest was Newcastle's fourth successive away victory as Howe's side made it seven points out of their last nine in the Premier League following the 3-1 win at Aston Villa and 4-4 draw against Luton Town. Next up for Newcastle is a home match against AFC Bournemouth next Saturday (3pm kick-off).
