The Worst Time Possible To Lose Yer Keeper!

Rob Elliot will make his league debut for the club against Southampton tomorrow . in a s-point fixture as both sides are hovering just above relegation,

Tim Krul suffered an ankle injury in Thursday night’s 1-0 Europa League win over Metalist Kharkiv when he was caught late by Jonathan Cristaldo as the Ukrainian side pressed for an equaliser.

Newcastle’s other senior goalkeeper, long-serving Steve Harper, has a niggling knee problem.

Elliot, signed from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2011, has made just six appearances for the club, all of them in cup competitions.

Alan Pardew: “I’d have no qualms about playing Rob – he’s been absolutely brilliant in training.

“So I’d have no problem with that."
