Newcastle's strikeforce for the opening match in the InterToto could have a very unusual look about it.
Regular forward Shola Ameobi has yet to start training following treatment on his troublesome hip injury, and the prospect of Albert Luque and/or James Milner leading the line is growing stronger by the day.
Keflavik lost to Lillestrom 4-1 on Saturday, so it seems as though the side from Norway will be the opposition on July 15.
Ameobi was told an injection would save him having surgery, but he has yet to see the benefit of any lasting results.
Glenn Roeder: 'Shola only had an injection two weeks ago and unfortunately, he's been unable to return to training. He's near to returning and hopefully he will early next week.
'What he's feeling is a little bit of needle soreness because of the probing around they did to get the right spot. He's still feeling sore where the needle went in.
'We were hoping he could return on Wednesday with the others, but he wasn't able to because of the pain. At the moment, he's in the physio room working on other things and as far as July 15 is concerned, I'd have to say he's touch and go. If he doesn't return next week, it would be asking a lot for him to play.'
