Squad To Face Newcastle

ALAN Pardew has no new injury worries ahead of Saturday's trip to the North East to face Newcastle United.

Goalkeeper Roy Carroll is included in the squad after recovering from a slight injury to his back as is Yossi Benayoun, who suffered a slight knock in the win over Blackburn Rovers. Both should be fit to play at St James' Park.

Defender Clive Clarke returns to the squad after missing out last weekend because of injury, while Tomas Repka is also travelling after missing the Blackburn game due to illness.

James Collins is absent due to a calf injury, while new signing David Bellion is still three to four weeks away from fitness as he recovers from injury.

The squad to face Newcastle United is as follows:

Carroll (GK), Hislop (GK), Etherington, Mullins, Gabbidon, Repka, Reo-Coker, Ward, Clarke, Dailly, Fletcher, Ferdinand, Harewood, Zamora, Konchesky, Sheringham, Noble, Benayoun, Williams, Newton.

Newcastle United v West Ham United at St James' Park, kick-off 3.00pm.
