Bare bones for Newcastle United

Newcastle United have been hit with a string of injuries to their back-line. According to Alan Pardew, they will go into the weekend's match against Everton without Tim Krul, Fabricio Colocinni, Danny Simpson.

They were already without Ryan Taylor, who presumably would have stepped in at right back. He's having surgery today.

We'll likely see Steve Harper and Mike Williamson step into the starting lineup. At right-back, it would presumably be James Perch deputizing. Harper and Perch are cheaper options, but you probably want to wait a week. At Everton isn't a kind fixture, but they do host Norwich next, on the back of a European date at Maritimo.
