Boss hopeful of duo return
New Newcastle manager Chris Hughton expects defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor to return for next Monday`s Championship trip to Sheffield United. Coloccini has not played since the 4-0 win at Ipswich due to a groin problem while a hamstring strain has forced Taylor to sit out the last three games. With Zurab Khizanishvili serving a three-match suspension for his red card against Doncaster - after the club lost their appeal - Hughton would welcome the duo`s availability. He told the club`s official website: "Both players have made very good progress. I am very optimistic both will be fit for Sheffield United."
