Ba to have scan on shin problem

Published Add your comment

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits in-form striker Demba Ba could be a doubt for next weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Anfield after limping out of Sunday's late win over West Bromwich Albion.

Pardew revealed a suspected shin injury had caused Ba to be replaced by Sammy Ameobi in the 72nd minute, after the Senegal striker had claimed his seventh goal in nine games with his 35th minute opener.

Ba will have a scan on the complaint this week and Pardew said: "Demba appears to have a bit of a nerve problem. It is not a major concern and I don't think it is an ongoing problem, but the major question is whether he can make next week."
