The young defender, who was on the bench for Saturday's 2-2 draw against Norwich, will not travel to Victoria Park.

Experienced midfielder Paul Wotton was ruled out at the weekend after suffering a knock in training, and he will be checked over.

Graeme Murty made his long-awaited return as a substitute after three months out with a knee injury and will be pushing for a start at right-back.

Midfielder Lloyd James has been deputising in defence and could be pushed forward into his preferred position if Murty goes in from the off.

Manager Alan Pardew has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from.
