Newell suffers broken hand

8 August 2013

Peterborough midfielder Joe Newell has broken a bone in his hand and is set for a short spell on the sidelines.

Newell suffered the injury in training and Posh boss Darren Ferguson expects the 20-year-old to be unavailable for a couple of weeks, missing the forthcoming Sky Bet League One matches against Notts County and Oldham.

It is hoped Newell will be back in contention for the game at Tranmere on August 24.

"Unfortunately it's not been a great start for Joe as we've all got high hopes for him but there's plenty of time and hopefully he'll be back within a couple of weeks," said Ferguson.
