David Moyes: "Newcastle have always spent and supported their managers but in truth the lack of stability has probably cost them over the years," said the Everton boss.

"I use Everton as an example. The board have kept things steady and the group of players has been consistent.

"Players come in and out like anywhere else but fundamentally we have tried to keep the core correct.

"If you keep chopping and changing I don't think, for the long-term future of any football club, it is the way to do it.

"We hope Joe Kinnear is well and recovers.

"It is hard to tell what effect him being missing will have as they had a good win at West Brom two weeks ago.

"If your manager is out it can leave a hole but I maintain this game is about the players.

"Chris Hughton (assistant manager) and Colin Calderwood (first-team coach) are good people and, who knows, it might just ease a bit of the tension up there.

"Sometimes it can work in your favour and it might just be what Newcastle need right now.

"We know we are going to a good club with a great stadium and big support but I am confident in the way we are playing we can go there and get a result."
