Emre In The Squad For Saturday

Emre In The Squad For Saturday

Turkish midfielder Emre is back in the Newcastle squad for Saturday's clash with Blackburn but has he seen the last of his hamstring problem? Too often in recent months players have returned too early and broken down almost from kick-off.

The former Inter Milan star could return to the starting line-up after an eight-game absence, while Titus Bramble has recovered from the ankle injury which kept him out of the 1-0 defeat at Fulham last week.

However, manager Graeme Souness is still without Michael Owen (foot), Scott Parker (knee), Steven Taylor (shoulder), Stephen Carr (groin), Shola Ameobi (hip), Craig Moore (hamstring) and Amady Faye (international duty).

Newcastle (from): Given, Harper, Ramage, Boumsong, Bramble, Babayaro, Elliott, Emre, Bowyer, Clark, Solano, N'Zogbia, Brittain, O'Brien, Shearer, Luque, Chopra.
