Callum Wilson sends motivational message to Newcastle fans

Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has sent a positive and passionate message to the club’s fans, as he continues his recovery from injury.

After picking up a calf injury in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on 27 December, the Magpies’ number nine is expected to be out for several weeks.

In the two games that Newcastle have played in the former Bournemouth man’s absence, we have been knocked out of the FA Cup by League One side Cambridge United and failed to hold onto a 1-0 lead against Watford.

Chris Wood made his debut against the Hornets at St James’ Park, but couldn’t inspire his new side to victory.

His former side Burnley were due to face Claudio Ranieri’s Watford tonight, but the Premier League have accepted a request from the Clarets that the game is postponed.

The Toon Army travel to Leeds United on Saturday to face a depleted but buoyant Marcelo Bielsa side who picked up a three crucial three points at West Ham on Sunday.

Following the clash at Elland Road, Newcastle don’t play for another 17 days due to the Premier League’s winter break.

It is hoped by the time we face Everton, on 8 February, several new signings have been bedded into the squad and had plenty of time to train with their new teammates.

But for all the concerns surrounding Newcastle’s ability and chances of beating the drop, Callum Wilson is trying to radiate positivity.

The England international has posted a message on his Instagram account.

The sooner Callum Wilson is back and able to partner Wood upfront the better, but Eddie Howe’s side have got to find a way to pick up points without our top scorer, ahead of his return.
