Loic Remy out for misfiring Magpies

Loic Remy will miss Newcastle's game at Stoke on Saturday as the Magpies aim to end their three-game losing streak.

Comprehensive defeats to Everton, Southampton and Manchester United have shown a side lacking quality and perhaps even motivation considering their European hopes are all-but finished.

A calf problem prevents Remy from playing again and although he rejected the chance to join Newcastle at the beginning of 2013, he has still become a popular player on Tyneside.

The striker, on loan from QPR, has scored 13 league goals for the division's ninth-placed side, who haven't scored since Papiss Cisse's stoppage-time winner on March 22nd.

Fans hoped this goal would boost the Senegalese forward's confidence, but his team-mates have been unable to create or score past Tim Howard, Artur Boruc or Anders Lindegaard.

Manager Alan Pardew will also be missing, as he has two games of his touchline ban left to serve. The former West Ham boss is allowed to take team-talks, but this had little effect when he returned for the game against the Saints.

Luuk De Jong, signed on loan in January, is still searching for his first Newcastle goal and the days of Demba Ba and Cisse hitting the back of the net seem a very long time ago.

Ba himself scored a hat-trick at the Britannia Stadium in 2011 and just one goal from his fellow countryman Cisse will be appreciated by the Toon Army this weekend.
