Newcastle will make late fitness call on Karl Darlow for Sunday's trip to Wolves with keeper still sore after heavy collision with Man United's Marcus Rashford in last weekend's defeat

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce will make a late decision on keeper Karl Darlow ahead of Sunday's Premier League trip to Wolves.

Darlow was hurt in a collision with Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford in Saturday night's 4-1 defeat at St James' Park and is touch and go for the trip to Molineux.

Bruce said: 'He's still sore, but he's made a huge improvement from where he was on Saturday night. We're going to have to take it down to the wire.
