Steve Bruce has accepted he’ll have to rotate over the coming weeks as we head into the busy festive period.

“When you look towards Boxing Day then the 28th – it’s a ridiculous schedule.

The NUFC boss believes it’s essential we ‘adapt’ and ‘have a bit of freshness’ ahead of the coming weeks, with us set to play SEVEN games over the next month.

The good news is it sounds like both Andy Carroll and DeAnadre Yedlin are OK despite recent injuries and could return tomorrow night, but Bruce is clearly wary of our ‘ridiculous schedule’ between now and the new year: “Certainly over the next few weeks we’ll have to [change things].

On the plus side, two players who’ve clearly recovered quickly from recent injuries are Carroll and Yedlin.

“They trained yesterday and, as long as there’s no real setbacks, they’ve got a chance.” Having both back would be a boost, but I expect Manquillo and Joelinton to get the nod once again tomorrow – whether Carroll and Yedlin are fully fit or not.

We’ll have to adapt and have a bit of freshness when needed which is always the difficult part.” Our games between now and the new year are: It’s hectic, and when our style of play relies on us putting in 110%, putting everything into our defending and breaking forward on the counter, it may be unrealistic to not make changes.
