Colo & Cisse Miss Brighton With Knocks

8 years ago

The news today is that having picked up knocks, Papiss Cisse and Fabricio Coloccini won’t be involved tomorrow at Brighton in the FA Cup third round tie.

The Evening Chronicle understands though that both are expected to be ok for the trip to Norwich on the following Saturday.

It has already been stated that new signing Mathieu Debuchy won’t be involved and with Cheick Tiote now off duty for Newcastle, we could be looking at a team very similar to the one that took on their Bordeaux Reserve counterparts in the final Europa League group match, after both teams had already qualified and we all know how that one turned out…

As a quick reminder this is the eleven who started that night;

Elliot, Tavernier, Perch, Williamson, Ferguson, Abeid, Bigirimana, Ranger, Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Shola

Krul, Santon, Anita are the three players who would up the quality as the only first team regulars available, while Obertan would appear to be a likely starter.

On a positive note, many fans will be hopeful that young Adam Campbell will be included and maybe get a chance to show our forward options aren’t quite as limited as they appear.

NUFC To Win 7/4
Shola To Score First Goal 7/1
Anita To Score In NUFC WIn 14/1
