Steve McClaren will be without a full team of players when Newcastle take on Sheffield Wednesday tonight.

Aleksandar Mitrovic misses the third game of his three match suspension, though he will be available for Chelsea on Saturday.

The long-term injured Sylvain Marveaux, Paul Dummett, Curtis Good and Emmanuel Riviere won’t be available for the foreseeable future, as they are still recovering from long-term injury.

Whilst Steve McClaren gave updates on a number of players at his press conference on Tuesday.

The full list looks like this…

Karl Darlow – Ankle

Steven Taylor – Out for at least 2 months after operation

Jack Colback – Picked up a knock according to Steve McClaren on Tuesday

Paul Dummett – Hamstring

Emmanuel Riviere – Knee

Aleksandar Mitrovic – Suspended

Massadio Haidara – Picked up a knock according to Steve McClaren on Tuesday

Cheick Tiote – Training again but not ready to play

Sylvain Marveaux -Groin

Curtis Good – Thigh

Papiss Cisse – Back problem since West Ham according to Steve McClaren on Tuesday

It sounds as though Colback and Haidara are at worst carrying minor niggles and will be alright for Chelsea, whilst Papiss Cisse could well be just being taken out of the firing line.

It could though be an interesting bench tonight!
