Celta Have Injury Problems Too

But one player they will be happy to have back in the side is Argentinian midfielder Gustavo Lopez who has been sidelined for a month.

Lopez: "Of course I am happy. Every time you return to normal it is always a positive. And to get into the squad, for a UEFA Cup game, is even more of a plus."
Celta coach Fernando Vazquez also included Iago Aspas in his 18-man squad for the trip to St James' Park.
However, Vazquez is still without a host of senior players with Daniel De Ridder, George Lucas, Matias Lequi, Antonio Guayre, Pablo Garcia and Antonio Nunez all still out with injuries.

Romanian defender Gabriel Tamas also misses out again after being suspended for last weekend's derby win over Deportivo La Coruna.
