Pardew Makes Six Changes As Siem De Jong Gets First Start
Alan Pardew claimed he was taking the same first team squad to Gillingham that he took to Aston Villa and that he would play a strong starting 11.
Earlier today we asked Newcastle fans to predict how many of the starting 11 that played against Villa would start and they predicted on average he would play five of the ten possibles, Williamson already suspended and unavailable of course.
Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett, Anita, Sissoko, Colback, Cabella, Gouffran, Riviere
Fans guessed correctly as Alan Pardew has made 6 changes (including Williamson and gone with;
Krul, Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Haidara, Abeid, Sissoko, Obertan, De Jong, Aarons, Riviere
Only Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Sissoko and Riviere remain of the Villa team.
While on the bench Pardew has;
Elliot, Anita, Dummett, Cabella, Gouffran, Perez, Ferreyra
No sign of Jack Colback but Ferreyra features on the bench for the first time.
