Newcastle’s Callum Wilson left frustrated after suffering hamstring injury



Brighton and Hove Albion v Newcastle United – Premier League – AMEX Stadium

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson has expressed his frustration with the hamstring injury which has stalled his strong start to the new Premier League campaign.

Wilson limped off midway through his side’s 3-3 draw with Manchester City earlier this month and is expected to remain on the sidelines for at least two more weeks.

The 30-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live’s The Footballer’s Football podcast: “I had a bit of a setback – disappointing because I felt like I had found my form and rhythm.”

Wilson scored on matchday one of the season against Nottingham Forest and again against City before hobbling after 70 minutes.
