Carlos Carvalhal is hoping the injury suffered by centre-back Mike van der Hoorn at St James’ Park on Saturday is not too serious.
The Dutchman was used as a makeshift right-back on Tyneside with Kyle Naughton [suspended] and Angel Rangel missing due to a calf strain. And the 25-year-old put in a solid performance before his injury on the hour mark. "Mike felt something in the muscle [suspected hamstring]," Carvalhal said. "We will have to see how bad the injury is. We have to wait 48 hours at least to try to see what he has done." Van der Hoorn is certain to miss the FA Cup replay with Wolves this week while a Monday night Premier League fixture [vs Liverpool] allows for a few additional days recovery. Carvalhal can call upon Kyle Bartley, to partner Alfie Mawson in the heart of defence, following his recovery from a long-term knee injury. Naughton is also available after completing his three-match ban. Jan 14 - 4:55 PM
