Newcastle United have been handed a double-fitness boost, with Ryan Taylor and Rolando Aarons on track to return in the imminent future.
Aarons and Taylor have both been ruled out for a considerable amount of time, but should return to action very soon.
Aarons picked up an injury back in the first month of the season, but he is targeting to be back within the next fortnight.
The Chronicle report that the youngster could be available for selection against Liverpool in the club's first game in November and that would be a considerable boost for Alan Pardew.
Aarons has been one of the only positives to come out of what has been a dire start from the Magpies, with their form over the opening part of the campaign very worrying.
The North-East side are still looking for their first victory of the season and fears of a relegation fight have ensued.
Aarons form, though, when he was on the pitch, encouraged supporters that he could be the bright spark to reinvigorate them before an injury put pay to his progress.
Taylor, meanwhile, has missed the entirety of this season so far after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in April.
The defender remains one of the better players in his position at St. James' Park, but his injury struggles over recent times have kept him out of contention.
He has came through two reserve games without any ill-effects from his current complaint, though, and the hope is that he could be available for selection soon.
It is not all good news for the club, however, as Tim Krul faces a scan today on an injury which he picked up on international duty.
