Rafa Benitez will make a late decision on the involvement of Isaac Hayden at Carrow Road.
The Newcastle United midfielder was an unused substitute at Molineux on Saturday.
Sometimes we think it’s a couple of days, then not. We have to keep working on that.Rafa Benitez
Hayden was left out of the starting XI because of a minor ankle problem which the club’s medical team havebeen managing on a week-to-week basis.
Jack Colback returned from illness against Wolverhampton Wanderers, beaten 1-0 by the Championship leaders.
And Benitez will make a late decision on who will partner Jonjo Shelvey in his midfield for tonight’s game against Norwich City.
Asked about Hayden’s injury, Benitez said: “We are treating his ankle, and then we’ll decide.
“Sometimes we think it’s a couple of days, then not.
“We have to keep working on that.
“You cannot control during the game if you have a bad tackle.
“We just have to wait and see how he progresses.”
Otherwise, Benitez has almost a fully fit squad at United.
Vurnon Anita and Rolando Aarons are the only two players with long-term injuries.
Asked about the injured list, Benitez said: “We just have Aarons and Anita. The others have been training, so very few problems.”
Meanwhile, forward Haris Vuckic netted twice in a 4-0 Premier League Cup win for Newcastle’s under-23s over Bristol City yesterday,
New signing Victor Fernandez and Jamie Holmes were also on target for Peter Beardsley’s side at Whitley Park.
