Bruce on Wilson
Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce is excited about the return of Callum Wilson who is back fit after a recent injury forced him to miss Newcastle’s match against Chelsea. Bruce said:
“As we speak now, he’ll be fit. He’s trained all week,
“We didn’t think we could risk him (against Chelsea), so he will be available which obviously we’re delighted about.
“Already he’s made a difference. He’s got six goals already in eight games in the Premier League so we’re delighted with his return.
“We have got one or two other niggles. We have one or two problems with COVID, so we have to manage that as well, but we’re delighted to see Callum back.”
Head to head
Newcastle are winless in their five most recent trips to Selhurst Park, in the Premier League, with three draws and two losses.
However, Crystal Palace have lost 14 of their last 16 Premier League fixtures without Wilfried Zaha, who misses tonight’s match.
That being said, the last seven meetings between the two sides have only produced seven goals so we may not be in for a thriller.
