The Newcastle England Premiership Series A Soccer side has received a boost following clearance for its duo to play. Leon Best had been sidelined for some time with an injury but that has all changed with the declaration. Likewise Nile Ranger seems to be recovering. It is interesting that both these players are strikers. That will mean that the team has the opportunity to rectify any issues that may have been holding them back from reaching the top echelons of the game.
Getting over injury woes
It is always good for a team to overcome its injury woes before the real challenges of the season start to manifest their impact. That means that the team captain and coach will have a good idea of what they are facing. It is possible to win a Championship with a mediocre team and also possible to lose the same Championship with an excellent team. The fortunes of the England team in the World Cup prove this point beyond reasonable doubt. Best had withdrawn from playing for the Republic of Ireland due to a tight hamstring. This can be a dangerous injury because you do not really know when it is going to stop. In this case the indicators were that the prognosis was good. Ranger faced a similar fate when he was unable to report for the England Under 20s team. On this occasion the problem was a perennial back problem.
Now the tables have turned and it has been reported that both Ranger and Best will return to playing England Premiership Series A Soccer at Ewood Park. The team is likely to be buoyed by the entrance of Shefki Kuqi. This is a short term deal that should help them to cover some of the gaps in the team. It has also been reported that Shola Ameobi will be returning after a stint away from the game. The cause of his absence was a fractured cheekbone. He will be fitted with a protective mask in order to reduce the risk of future incidents. In other news, it has been reported that Steven Taylor is set to return to training after the hamstring injury that he suffered on Monday. At that time he had been on loan. The injury was picked up while he was with Aston Villa and this must be particularly galling for the home team. The teams are benefiting from the resolution of injury problems and they should make an impact on England Premiership Series A Soccer.
