Defender Steven Taylor will return to the Newcastle squad for Saturday's home clash with Peterborough.

The 23-year-old has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, and saw Hungarian youngster Tamas Kadar line-up alongside Fabricio Coloccini in central defence at Sheffield United on Monday evening.

Manager Chris Hughton told the club's official website: "Steven could have probably, at a push, played against Sheffield United. We chose not to risk him and that decision paid off. But he will be fine for the weekend and we look forward to welcoming him back."

He added: Taylor missed successive Coca-Cola Championship defeats at Nottingham Forest and Scunthorpe, as well as the wins over Doncaster and the Blades which took the Magpies back to the top of the table.
