Newcastle United rocked by six-week injury to key player
Miguel Almiron’s facing an extended spell on the sidelines at Newcastle United.
The midfielder missed tonight’s 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest with a thigh injury.
And Eddie Howe revealed after the game that the injury’s likely to keep Almiron, the club’s 11-goal leading scorer, out until May.
“Miggy pulled a thigh muscle in training,” said United’s head coach. “Unfortunately, it’s quite a bad one. It’s going to be six weeks.”
Almiron had scored the winner in last weekend’s 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
