Steve Bruce issues Newcastle United injury update on Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin
Steve Bruce has given an update on Miguel Almiron ahead of tomorrow night’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Almiron returned to training this week after recovering from the knee injury he suffered last month – and the Newcastle United midfielder could return at the Amex Stadium. However, the Premier League game will come too soon for Callum Wilson (hamstring) and Allan Saint-Maximin (groin).
“They (Wilson and Almiron) are both back on the grass,” said head coach Bruce. “He (Wilson) is well into his rehabilitation, the same goes for Almiron. He trained for the first time yesterday. We’ll see how he is. Things are obviously improving.
"The same goes for Saint-Maximin. We knew Saint-Maximin and Callum, in particular, were nasty muscle injuries, which were obviously going to take time. You have to let nature take it’s course.
Asked if Almiron could be involved against Brighton, Bruce said: “He’s got a chance. We’ll see.”
