Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will welcome back key midfield duo Cheick Tiote and Yohan Cabaye.

Tiote has missed the last seven games because of his involvement in Ivory Coast’s African Nations Cup campaign, while Cabaye has now completed his three-match ban.

Utility man Ryan Taylor is also available after missing the 5-0 defeat at Spurs with an ankle injury, but Leon Best and Sammy Ameobi (both knee), Steven Taylor (Achilles) and Sylvain Marveaux (groin) remain on the sidelines.

Wolves midfielder Karl Henry is available after a three-match suspension for his red card against Aston Villa.

Winger Michael Kightly is also back in contention for managerless Wolves after suffering a back injury against Villa nearly four weeks ago.

Top scorer Steven Fletcher was unable to train earlier this week because of a virus and migraine but caretaker boss Terry Connor is optimistic he will be fit.

Newcastle (from): Krul, Elliot, Harper, Simpson, Santon, Ferguson, Perch, Coloccini, Williamson, Kadar, Tiote, Cabaye, R. Taylor, Obertan, Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Gosling, Abeid, Ba, Cisse, Shola Ameobi, Lovenkrands.
