Newcastle are still waiting to discover the full extent of the knee injury sustained by Welsh international Paul Dummett after the defender limped away from Selhurst Park in GW25 with a knee injury.
Dummett was seen walking with the aid of crutches in the days following the game and what was originally reported as "bang on the knee" by manager John Carver now looks to be a little more serious. With Steven Taylor [Achilles] ruled out for the season and Davide Santon and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa leaving during the January transfer window the potential loss of Paul Dummett is a huge blow with Mike Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini the only recognised central defenders. Meanwhile the fate of Cheick Tiote hangs the balance after the Magpies midfielder returned from the African Cup of Nations with a knee problem. Feb 17 - 12:16 PM

Paul Dummett has been formally ruled out of action for Newcastle United when they face Hull City on Saturday.

Tough break for anyone looking at Dummett as a sneaky bargain pick against an abysmal Tigers attack. There is no timetable regarding his hamstring to accompany the news of his absence this weekend but one would expect that to mean he will be in contention to return next weekend. Meanwhile, Davide Santon is fit again and will be pushing for his first league start of the season.

The tension is increasing on Tyneside as their search for a replacement coach / manager looks no closer to conclusion after more than three weeks with caretaker John Carver yet to win a game.

There was an air of discontent around St James’ Park on Saturday as Newcastle welcomed Southampton although the home side will seldom be presented with a better opportunity to take points from a team within the top five. The Saints were playing their third away game in six days with Ronald Koeman losing three key players in the process – Morgan Schneiderlin, Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld – while Dusan Tadic and Ryan Bertrand were passed fit just hours before the game. But Newcastle lacked any cutting edge in the final third and in truth never troubled Southampton despite plenty of possession. However any plans of introducing another striker – Adam Armstrong - for the last ten minutes were thwarted when Paul Dummett limped off with a hamstring problem with Carver choosing to go like-for-like following the introduction of Mike Williamson.

Newcastle United's physio room is a virtual MASH unit right now, with multiple injuries at every position, and are now tasked to travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

There are so many players carrying knocks or out long term for the Magpies right now, it really has become just a matter of finding eleven healthy individuals to field at this point. Add in a caretaker manager and trip to play a Chelsea side who are licking their wounds after their loss against Spurs and you have a recipe for fantasy Armageddon. Dummett is one of the few healthy options that has had a big haul or two before and can be had for a bargain price, but to expect any score above zero may be a fool's errand. To his credit, Dummett is coming off his last league start in which he scored, except it was of the "own" variety. Yeah, things at St. James' are in disarray to say the least right now.

Paul Dummett joins the list of players missing out for their country during the international break, as he was omitted from the Wales squad with a muscular injury.

Wales will square off against Bosnia and Herzegovina tomorrow, then Cyprus a few days later as they attempt to escape their group. Dummett had appeared to regained his spot as a regular in Newcastle's XI, having started their last three league games. Alan Pardew will be happy to see his versatile left back spending the break on the mend as they prepare for their next match he must view as one that must end with a positive result, home to Leicester City. Ryan Taylor is working his way back to health and could possibly replace Dummett should the latter not return to fitness by Week Eight.

As expected, Paul Dummett has been ruled out of Newcastle United's match against Chelsea. The young defender only lasted 40 minutes of a substitute appearance against Manchester City in the League Cup.

Newcastle's defence is getting pretty thin. Mike Williamson and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will be the center back pairing by default.
