Big Sho ready to go

Big Sho ready to go

Good news on the comeback trail as Shola Ameobi looks set to come back into the frame over the next few weeks. Having suffered a stress fracture of the foot, we've muddled through with just Nile Ranger as our lone striker at some stages.

However now it looks like Shola will join Nile, Andy Carroll and Marlon Harewood to contest the striking role until January. Chris Hughton, obviously happy said:

'Shola will train with the reserves on Monday before joining in with the rest of the squad on Tuesday after Preston. He has made good progress and we're delighted to welcome him back. It was disappointing for Shola to miss out after the start he had.

But he'll be looking to get back to that level and we certainly hope he can because he was excellent for us during those first few weeks.'
