Howe’s hoping for double boost against Brentford after Fraser and Saint-Maximin injury
This week, the two will be evaluated at the training facility.
After picking up a muscular strain in the 1-1 draw against West Ham, Ryan Fraser will be evaluated during the week.
With a Scotland World Cup match against Ukraine coming, the former AFC Bournemouth star has been in the finest form of his United career in recent games and will be desperate to maintain fitness and face Brentford this week.
Steve Clarke and John Carver were on hand to examine whether Fraser should be reinstated to the Scotland team for the match at Hampden Park next month.
When asked why Fraser had been hooked early after the stalemate at the London Stadium, Howe replied: “At the moment, I’m not sure.
“As he walked off the field, I believe he stated that his hamstring was a little strained, but we’ll see.
“It might be a case of exhaustion or cramping.”
Allan Saint-Maximin is set to be included in Howe’s squad for Saturday’s game against Brentford.
The winger was sidelined for Saturday’s match against the Hammers due to a calf injury.
Newcastle’s home match against Crystal Palace has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 20th.
In the midst of a demanding schedule, this will provide Magpies an extra day of preparation.
However, if Palace win the FA Cup fifth round and beat Stoke City at home, the game might be rescheduled.
