Newcastle left St Mary’s with a point on Sunday but the draw was slightly marred due to an injury which meant the Tynesiders had to see out the game with only ten fit players.
Speaking after the match, Rafa Benitez revealed that Dwight Gayle "had a little problem with his calf" which will require a scan on Monday. Last season’s top scorer entered the fray with a quarter of the game remaining in the hope of stretching a tiring Saints defence, but following a lung bursting charge on 80 minutes, Gayle felt his calf stiffen and he was forced to drop a little deeper to help close out the match under increasing pressure. The setback is yet more bad news for the striker who was the subject of intense transfer speculation towards the end of the summer window. Gayle has only started twice in the Premier League this season and is becoming more and more frustrated with his bit part role having fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Joselu.
