Bruce told BBC Radio Newcastle: “Dummett’s done his other leg – the hamstring. Gayle, we think is a groin injury. We’ll see how he is. It’s really frustrating for all of us. He (Gayle) was terrific (before going off injured). He was out for two and a half months from July (with a calf problem), so we’ve been constantly trying to get him fit.”
