Danny Simpson and Danny Guthrie hit the comeback trail today for Newcastle United. Chris Hughton: "They've made decent progress in their rehab, and it's good news to have them back. "They've had two good weeks training, and both will play 90 minutes (in the behind-closed-door match with Aston Villa that also includes Alan Smith and Ryan Taylor). "As far as the Wigan game goes, we've got to remember Danny Simpson's been out for a long time. we'll assess it. "We have to be mindful of that – he'll probably need a bit more playing time, but he's worked very, very hard on his rehab. "We want as many players fit and available as possible, and it'll be good to have them back."
