Newcastle were hoping to make it five Premier League wins on the spin as Queens Park Rangers came to St James’ Park having failed to take a single point on the road this season. However the home were missing a number of key players as Alan Pardew was forced to reshuffle his side.
With Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor both missing central defensive duties were left to the returning Mike Williamson and Paul Dummett but it was in midfield where the Geordies were struggling. Cheick Tiote, Mehdi Abeid and Gabriel Obertan were all ruled out which meant Ryan Taylor was afforded his first Premier League start in over two-and-a-half years following injury and it was the returning defensively midfielder who left the field in tears on 34 minutes. Taylor broke down unchallenged in the first half and following a quick assessment it became apparent he could no longer continue – although tests on his knee are still ongoing – the player himself has confirmed there are "no major problems."
