Pardew hopeful over Cabaye injury

Published Add your comment

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is hopeful key midfielder Yohan Cabaye did not suffer any lasting damage after finding himself on the wrong end of an X-rated tackle.

The Frenchman reacted furiously and left the pitch on a stretcher after being felled by QPR midfielder Shaun Derry's 20th-minute challenge during Sunday's 1-0 victory for the Magpies.

Pardew, who later revealed the injury did not seem as bad as was first feared, admitted that referee Chris Foy had probably got it right in only producing a yellow card, and said: "It was a strong challenge, but Shaun Derry is a player who makes strong challenges. The referee was right on top of it."
