Plymouth Argyle Vs Newcastle United, Mon 19 Apr 2010

Plymouth midfielder Luke Summerfield could come back into contention for the must-win home game against title-chasing Newcastle.

Summerfield is fit again following a hamstring injury and could earn an instant recall to Paul Mariner`s side.

Talismanic skipper Carl Fletcher has been ruled out since Argyle's defeat by Blackpool at the end of last month with a knee injury and although he has recovered from that, he has since been nursing a calf injury.

The midfielder is hoping to be fit though and may make the squad, along with defender Kari Arnason, who has been ruled out for six games by a hip injury is now back to full fitness.

Winger Craig Noone (knee) is set to miss out in a match that will see Plymouth relegated to League One should they fail to record three points, while Newcastle need a point to seal the Championship title.

MOn-loan defender Fitz Hall could return to the Newcastle squad.

Hall, who joined on a short-term deal from QPR in January, has recovered from a hamstring injury and is on standby to take over from Fabricio Coloccini.

The Argentinian damaged a hamstring during Tuesday night's 2-1 win at Reading and is a doubt, although his condition is being assessed.

Hungarian Tamas Kadar is also in the treatment room as he attempts to shake off a thigh problem.

Long-term absentee Steven Taylor remains on the sidelines, although he was close to a return from a knee injury when reports surfaced of an alleged training ground incident in which it was claimed he had suffered a broken jaw.
