Enrique doubt for Wolves visit

Newcastle United

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew hopes Jose Enrique recovers from a hamstring complaint in time to face Wolves on Saturday.

The Spanish left-back was forced off early with a hamstring injury during the loss at Stoke last time out but Pardew hopes he will be available to start against Wolves at St James’ Park on Saturday.

He told the Shields Gazette: “I’m half hopeful that Jose makes it. Jonas (Gutierrez) is fit, and Joey Barton has another week of training under his belt. It’s just whether Jose makes it through.”
