Although the injury to Andy Carroll leaves a gaping hole in our squad, a void that despite our best endeavours we cannot fill, there is one chink of good news relating to the Geordie.

It would seem that our record £19 million buy, will not require surgery on his latest foot injury and it will be a case of just waiting for the injury to heal naturally.

It`s also being reported that Carroll will be packed off to Holland, in a couple of weeks` time, for extensive rehabilitation.

A target date for a comeback is, unfortunately, Christmas at the earliest!
