Carroll played the whole of Newcastle's 0-0 draw with Fulham yesterday and twice came close to making it eight goals for the season, although it is thought he may have suffered a groin injury in the process.

The in-form Carroll received his maiden call-up to the senior squad last night after a run of impressive performances for his club. The 21-year-old has scored seven goals for Newcastle so far this season - their first back in the Premier League - and has won numerous plaudits for his all-action style of play.
Former captain John Terry is a doubt for the game after injury forced him out of Chelsea's match with Sunderland today. According to the Blues' website, the central defender experienced a nerve problem in training yesterday. It is the latest injury worry for both England and Chelsea, with Frank Lampard ruled out for up to a further three weeks after suffering a muscle injury.
And after the game Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti said the defender would not be fit to play at Wembley, although he hopes to have him back for next Saturday's trip to Birmingham City.
"Terry trained yesterday but, at the end of the training session, he had pain on his nerve in his hamstring and we had the test this morning," Ancelotti said. "He was not able to play today. I don't think he will be able to play for the national team. He is out of the squad.
"I don't know if he has to report, we will wait to hear from them. He has had control of this problem. He never missed a training session but yesterday the pain was more, so he was not able to play. But I think he can play the next game. It is an injury, but he can control it. He has controlled it for 12 games. He's doing good prevention, good treatment. Everything will be okay for him."
