Matty back in squad for Chesterfield clash

Alan Pardew has named a 22-man squad for tonight's Carling Cup third round clash against Chesterfield at Saltergate.

Matthew Etherington, who missed the weekend defeat at his former club Tottenham with a slight calf injury, has been included in the travelling party and will face a late fitness test before the match, while Tyrone Mears is also available for selection after recovering from a knee problem.

Irish defender George McCartney is named in the squad for the first time following his summer move from Sunderland, and Anton Ferdinand has also travelled despite picking up a knock at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Squad: Green, Carroll, Mascherano, Mears, Dailly, Spector, Etherington, Konchesky, Mullins, Benayoun, Sheringham, Reid, Reo-Coker, Cole, Ferdinand, Harewood, Zamora, Pantsil, Gabbidon, Tevez, Green, McCartney.
