Striker Crisis!

Striker Crisis!

Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder faces a striker crisis ahead of his side's Barclays Premiership clash with West Brom at St James' Park on Saturday.

Already without Alan Shearer (knee) and Michael Owen (foot), Shola Ameobi is again doubtful after breaking his two front teeth against Wigan last Saturday, leaving Albert Luque and Michael Chopra as the likely pairing in attack.

Roeder is also without Scott Parker (glandular fever) and Lee Bowyer (hamstring), although Emre could return after being sidelined with a groin injury.

Newcastle United: Given, Carr, Babayaro, Elliott, Ramage, Moore, Bramble, Solano, N'Zogbia, Ameobi, Harper, Boumsong, Clark, Faye, Chopra, Luque, Dyer, Emre.
