Newcastle may be forced to bring in an emergency loan goalkeeper following the news that second choice stopper Rob Elliot suffered a recurrence of a thigh injury which could rule him out until the New Year.
Facing an unbeaten Chelsea side at St James’ Park on Saturday Rob Elliot had just returned to the Newcastle starting line-up after a training ground ankle injury ruled Tim Krul out – ligament damage which is expected to mean at least 6 weeks on the sidelines. However a routine goal kick on 42 minutes caused a tear which saw Elliot limp to the dressing room at half-time. Jak Alnwick made his competitive debut as a second half substitute and despite the youngster conceding a late Didier Drogba header to ensure a nervy finish the goalkeeper looked very assured. However with little experience and a busy fixture period coming up Alan Pardew will move quickly to bring in extra cover – Mark Schwarzer tops the list of potential keepers who could come in.
