Chris Hughton has decided to give a start to Slovenian 17 year-old Haris Vuckic, at Carrow Road, Norwich this afternoon.
Haris Vuckic – starts this afternoon
Slovenian winger Haris Vuckic has replaced Faroe Islands International Joan Edmundsson in the starting line-up, and the 18 year-old Edmundsson will now start on the bench, and could well appear later in the game.
James Tavernier and Nile Ranger are also youngsters in the starting line-up for Newcastle this afternoon, and Tim Krul starts the game in goal, but Fraser Forster is not even on the bench (is he injured?), with young Jak Alnick the back-up goalkeeper, who may play in the second half.
