Steve Harper admits that the heart has been taken out of the Magpies side due to injury. Steve Harper: "When you take three massive players out of the heart of your team, it is going to be to the detriment of the team. "To be without Kevin Nolan and Cheick Tiote was massive for us - but losing Shola overnight was one too many. "Suspensions and injuries are killing us. We knew we had a small squad and that's why last week (against Wolves) was a massive result."
