Newcastle’s survival chances take huge blow after losing their ‘best player’

31 Mar

Elliot’s Newcastle team-mate Paul Dummett was among the many well-wishers. The defender said: “I’m absolutely gutted for Rob and hope he makes a swift recovery.”

And club legend and all-time leading scorer Alan Shearer said: “It’s devastating news for Rob, football is cruel at times. He’s been Newcastle’s best player this season by a mile, and I wish him a speedy recovery.”

England Under-19 international Freddie Woodman will be on the bench as Benitez’s second-bottom side look to close the three-point gap on the fourth-bottom Canaries.

But because they have two fit senior keepers, Newcastle cannot sign another on an emergency loan.
