NUFC Logo Newcastle United FC

Skipper will go under the knife and will miss final two games, while Steve Harper will also undergo an operation

Newcastle United captain Kevin Nolan will undergo a minor operation on his right ankle on Thursday afternoon which will see him miss United's last two games of the season.

The skipper has been troubled by an ankle problem throughout the season but the operation is going ahead now in order to allow him time to regain full fitness prior to the start of United's pre-season programme in July.

Meanwhile, keeper Steve Harper will undergo a planned operation on his left knee tomorrow with the aim also being that he is ready for pre-season.
