Martin O'Neill is hoping that Ashley Young will recover from his knock in time to face Newcastle in our last match of the season.
Ash limped off with a calf injury in todays draw against Middlesbrough which saw us drop to a prioritised 6th place in the league.
Speaking on the official site, O'Neill, a man who believes James Milner is a right (more on that in a minute) back said:
'Ashley got a kick in the calf. He was really sore when he came off and it has tightened up since.
'But I am hoping he will be fine in the next few days but I am not sure yet.'
Decisive as ever eh!

Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
