Interesting one this, they will come here expecting to take the points after such an excellent start and if we don't deal with the threats of Ba and Jonas will be in for a tough afternoon. The one thing that does give me some hope is the injuries they have at the back. I expect Coloccini might end up playing with Taylor definately out. If someone like Perch or Simpson has to fill in then I'd seriously fancy Morison against them. I'd be tempted to go two upfront for this one and really try and get at them especially if Coloccini is indeed out aswell. Its time for Surman to be dropped, like C. Martin he deserved a crack but didn't add anything, Hoolahan in please. I'm guessing it will be the same two CBs but if Lambert fancies Ayala as 1st choice then maybe its time to give him a game... (would have been mental to do so last week) I'm not so sure about this really, people will probably think Newcastle might struggle without 1st choice defenders but they've got lots of other inform players and aren't 6th in the table for no reason! 2-3, Perch, Jonas, Ba, Morison, Hoolahan.
