The youth team players who could help Newcastle through their current injury crisis

03 March 2021 05:15

In an already dismal season that sees Newcastle locked in an avoidable relegation battle, Callum Wilson's goals, Miguel Almiron's improved form and the return of Allan Saint-Maximin have all proven to be small glimmers of hope for the Magpies fans.

Goals can keep you in the top flight, especially with players of that quality. Wilson's ten goals and five assists in the league has been nothing short of heroic, but with him now nursing another injury, they need to come from elsewhere. Almiron and Saint-Maximin have joined him in the treatment room, too, spelling nothing short of disaster for Steve Bruce's side with the trio out until April at the earliest.

Three points above the drop zone with 17th-placed Fulham finding form and momentum, the chips are down on Tyneside and some inspiration is needed. With little to lose, it's time for Bruce to hang his hat on some youth team talent to provide some much-needed feel-good factor around the club and, perhaps, manufacture a miracle in the absence of their star players.
