Injury update: Boost for Bournemouth ahead of Newcastle clash

Injury update: Boost for Bournemouth ahead of Newcastle clash

22 Feb 2018, 21:00

Jermain Defoe is set to be fit to make a return from injury for AFC Bournemouth ahead of  Newcastle clash.

Defoe, who signed a three year contract with Bournemouth last summer, has been absent with a fractured ankle since suffering the injury in a challenge by Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu during Bournemouth 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat on December 20.

However, the England international  is back in training with the Bournemouth first-team and that is not the news Newcastle fans will want to hear either, given the fact the  forward has netted eight times against the Magpies in his career - including two in just three Tyne-Wear derbies during his spell at Sunderland.

The Magpies are 13th with 28 points, while Bournemouth are three points and three places better off in 10th.
