Full-Back - Newcastle's Troubled Position

Last updated : 04 May 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Newcastle face Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road a week today, but the odds are seemingly against Marveaux returning against Harry Redknapp’s relegated side.

Alan Pardew, without the suspended Mathieu Debuchy, lost left-back Massadio Haidara to a hamstring problem this week.

Alan Pardew: “Full-back has been a bit of a problem for us, but that’s our season.

“I know everyone’s saying I keep talking about the injuries, but we’ve just had one after another. We seem to lose a player every game. We’ve accepted that.

“But I think, with Colo being fit, that’s a massive help for us. We need his experience and leadership.”
