Newcastle's injury problems have deepened with the news Danny Guthrie is expected to be out for up to six weeks with a groin problem picked up in last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Chelsea.

It was a costly game for manager Alan Pardew, who confirmed Steven Taylor will miss the rest of the season following surgery on his Achilles, while fellow defender Fabricio Coloccini also limped off with a thigh problem.

The Argentinian has an outside chance of being fit for Saturday's trip to Norwich but if he fails to make it then Pardew will be left without an established centre-half.
