Sky Sports | Football | Premier League | News | Simpson ready to return
Danny Simpson is eyeing a recall to the Newcastle starting XI after breezing through a comeback game.
The full-back, who has been sidelined for six months with an ankle problem, stepped up his return with a run out in a behind-closed-doors clash with Aston Villa on Tuesday.
He was able to get 75 much-needed minutes under his belt in that contest and has experienced no adverse reaction to his first outing of the season.
Simpson is likely to be held back in the reserves until he recovers his full match sharpness, but the 23-year-old is delighted to be back in the frame.
Doesn't sound like he'll make the home match againt Wigan (shame) but one to watch in upcoming weeks.
