Yohan Cabaye: Does not expect groin injury to be serious

The Frenchman suffered the damage and was forced off just 37 minutes into the Magpies' 1-0 UEFA Europa League win over Anzhi Makhachkala at St James' Park on Thursday night.

Cabaye, who has made 25 appearances for Newcastle this season, underwent surgery in December on a groin injury which forced him to spend two months on the sidelines.

But the 27-year-old insists his latest problem is less severe and not linked to his earlier injury.

"It is adductor, but not the same place," he told L'Equipe. "I felt some pain.

"We played a lot of matches recently so that could be a reason. Before the encounter against Anzhi, I felt fine.

"I don't think it will be really serious."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
