More good news: Paul Dummett posts welcome injury update on Twitter

Newcastle Fans 3

The Newcastle United defender chose the perfect day to provide more good news on social media.

Some (see John Hartson) might not agree but a 0-0 draw at Manchester United is good news for Newcastle.

It certainly doesn't see the St James' Park outfit reach the heights they once did under Kevin Keegan - or even Alan Pardew!

But, considering their woeful recent away form - and catastrophic defending on the road - a clean sheet and point at Old Trafford was an encouraging sign for Steve McClaren and the traveling fans on Saturday afternoon.

So there was no better time for Newcastle defender Paul Dummett to take to Twitter with more good news for the Magpies. Indeed, the 23-year-old responded to a fan who asked him on social media when he'll return to match action.

'Not too long,' was the reply, with Dummett confirming he is now back in full training.

If McClaren is hoping for a Newcastle win any time soon, he may still be kept waiting quite some time. Next up for the Magpies are Arsenal, while the international break then stifles their bid to generate any momentum.

After that, though, Newcastle travel to West Ham United. And, based on the Hammers' current form, there could be a very real chance of an away win at Upton Park.
