Steve Bruce handed DOUBLE injury boost as Newcastle United duo spotted in training ahead of Liverpool clash
Steve Bruce has been handed a double injury boost.
That’s after Newcastle United pair Allan Saint-Maximin and Fabian Schar were pictured training ahead of this weekend’s clash against Liverpool.
Saint-Maximin was a concern for the clash after going off with an ankle injury against West Ham whilst Schar has been out with a knee injury since early February.
Steve Bruce though, refused to accept that Newcastle had secured their Premier League status after a thrilling victory over Champions League hopefuls West Ham.
The result meant the Magpies were nine points clear of trouble.
“I’m not going to take anything for granted,” Bruce said.
“I’ve always said it’s the accumulation of points, and 35, in my opinion, is not enough, so you won’t get me jumping and hollering at the moment.
“We’ve still got six games to play – can we finish above where we did last year? Can we beat last year’s points tally? Can we beat where we were? We’ll try our utmost.”
