Pardew To Chance His Arm In Athens?

20 August 2012 08:43
Haris Vuckic and Gael Bigirimana are in the frame for Newcastle United's Europa League visit to Atromitos.

James Tavernier and Adam Campbell will also be in the squad.

Pardew will make a number of changes for the tie, which comes less than 48 hours before Newcastle’s visit to Chelsea on Saturday.

Alan Pardew: “We’ve got three or four big young players there. I might need them this week. I just don’t know.

“For us, we’ve got about three or four scenarios.

“We’ll have to wait and see but one thing we do know is that logistically, we’re all covered.

“We know exactly what we’re doing.

“We’ve got it well-planned, and we’ll try to get the rest for the guys who play on Thursday so they can play on Saturday.”
