It seems that Davide Santon and possibly Jonas Gutierrez are the only players who could return to the side for the game at Leicester City tomorrow afternoon in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Davide Santon – could start tomorrow
Steven Taylor picked up a season ending ruptured Achilles after an hour of the game yesterday – and he’ll be lucky to be ready for pre-season if it’s completely ruptured.
Sammy Ameobi is not going to be ready for a couple more weeks so we don;t really have anybody else coming back from injury.
This could be Newcastle’s best side for tomorrow:
Janmaat Coloccini (c) Dummett Santon (Haidara)
Anita Sissoko Colback Gouffran
Subs: Woodman Haidara (Santon) Williamson Vuckic Gutierrez Armstrong Cabella
It’s a toss up whether Santon or Haidara start the game – and certainly Massadio deserves a start in the team.
And we would give Paul Dummett a game at center-back to see if he maybe a better choice than Mike Williamson until another center-back arrives at the club this month.
Yes – there’s a lot of hope in that last sentence.
What team would you play tomorrow?
