Steve Bruce given triple Newcastle United injuries boost but star man will miss Leeds United clash

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has received a triple Newcastle United injury boost but one of his side's star men will miss Friday's clash against Leeds United at St James' Park.

Ciaran Clark, Javier Manquillo and Joe Willock all picked up knocks in last weekend's 4-1 defeat at Manchester United but Bruce has revealed that the trio have all shaken off their injuries.

However, star striker Callum Wilson will miss Friday's Premier League contest against the Whites, despite Bruce reporting that the forward is making 'good progress' via a report from Chronicle Live.

Wilson picked up a thigh strain in the 2-2 draw at home to Southampton before the September international break and missed Saturday's reverse at Old Trafford.
