The 30-year-old will sit out after being sent off for two bookable offences in Saturday's 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw at Aston Villa, although he might have done so in any case with Steven Taylor waiting in the wings.

Young midfielders Rolando Aarons and Mehdi Abeid and striking counterpart Adam Armstrong could be handed a chance, although manager Alan Pardew does not intend to make wholesale changes despite being without defenders Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa (knock) and Davide Santon (knee), midfielder Cheick Tiote (hamstring) and frontman Papiss Cisse (knee).

Newcastle (from): Krul, Elliot, Janmaat, Dummett, Haidara, Coloccini, S. Taylor, Anita, Abeid, Gouffran, Sissoko, Colback, Cabella, De Jong, Obertan, Aarons, Riviere, Ferreyra, Perez, Armstrong.
