According to the Chronicle Live, Isaac Hayden will return for Newcastle United ahead of their clash with Wigan Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship tomorrow.

Hayden has not featured in a matchday squad since Newcastle’s draw with Norwich City last month, and has been struggling with an ankle injury.

The 22-year old has played a crucial part in helping Rafa Benitez’s side to the top of the Championship table, making 27 league appearances and scoring one goal.

The midfielder’s return is a boost for Benitez, as his Newcastle side aim to get back to winning ways, having failed to record a victory in their last three league fixtures.

Despite their recent troubles, the Magpies have maintained their place at the top of the Championship table and will be confident of picking up some valuable points in the next week, with fixtures against Wigan and Burton Albion.

It has also been confirmed that Daryl Murphy and Grant Hanley have recovered from their respective injuries, and will be in contention for Newcastle at the weekend. 

Newcastle fans… Are you pleased to see Hayden back in the squad? Let us know in the comments!
