Krul 50-50 To Play Against Fulham

Last updated : 31 August 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

The goalkeeper has a minor injury, and Rob Elliot has been put on standby for the Premier League game.

Krul – who dislocated his shoulder late last season – wasn’t available for selection at Morecambe on Wednesday night, and he was set for a late fitness test ahead of this afternoon’s game at St James’s Park.

Alan Pardew: “We will see how he goes.

“The other fella (Elliot) has been terrific.

“He’s come in under the radar. We brought him for a few hundred grand, which was nothing really.

“Everybody thought he was worth that for a reason, but he’s a much better player than that."
