Newcastle United head to Morecambe this evening in a League Cup second round tie, in what will be the first time the sides have ever played each other.
Alan Pardew’s struggling Newcastle side will be desperate to leave the Globe Arena with a win, following a miserable start to the season – both results wise and in the transfer market.
Having failed to bring in any signings of note bare the injured Loic Remy, Newcastle were thrashed by Manchester City in their opening Premier League game, and struggled to a demoralising 0-0 draw at home to West Ham.
To make matter worse, wantaway midfielder Yohan Cabaye is unavailable, as is centre-half Steven Taylor and Argentine winger Jonas Gutierrez.
