Forestieri eyes return for Newcastle clash

Fernando Forestieri looks likely to make his return to the Wednesday starting line-up against high-flying Newcastle in Saturday evening’s televised clash at Hillsborough.

He has missed the last four matches with a knee injury but Carlos Carvalhal said after Tuesday night’s win over Rotherham: “The expectation is that Forestieri will be back for Saturday.”

He added that defender Vincent Sasso will also be available following a three-match ban for his sending off at Villa last month.
