Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has confirmed he could be without Steven Taylor and Yohan Cabaye until February.

Central defender Taylor damaged a hamstring during Sunday's 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Southampton, while France midfielder Cabaye is expected to undergo a second groin operation in the next 24 hours.

Asked if the news on Taylor was worse than first feared, the manager said: "It probably is. It's about six to eight weeks, we think, so it's another blow. We are in a run of bad luck for us."
