Shola Ameobi scored his first goal in ages to give NEwcastle United the lead and end their scoring drought, but the Magpies would rack up injuries and concede twice to eventually come up empty-handed in a 1-2 loss to Swansea City.

The outlook began gloomy for Newcastle when Papiss Cisse pulled up limp and had to be replaced twenty minutes in, but Ameobi quickly reversed fortunes when he was fed in the box by Luuk de Jong and twisted his way around the defense to get a shot off that beat Michel Vorm and ended a goalless drought that lasted over six hours. However, things took a turn for the worse permanently when De Jong looked to suffer a major injury and both of the Magpie forwards had to be removed. Alan Pardew had to then rely om Loic Remy more than expected, who had just come back to the squad after a six game layoff, and he was ineffective. Newcastle continue to stumble their way through a mid table finish.

Davide Santon suffered a hamstring injury in training, and the fear is that it rules him out for the remainder of the season.

Santon is rumoured to be a target for Roma in the off-season, and it would be a shame for his Newcastle career to end this way.

Newcastle striker, Loic Remy, was ruled out of last weekend's match against Stoke City, but is expected to be fit to face Swansea on Saturday.

Newcastle could be boosted by both Remy and Mathieu Debuchy this weekend. Neither player may be at the club next season, but their desire to look good in the shop window could be what a moribund Newcastle side need.

Tim Krul returned to action on Saturday but his presence wasn't enough for the Magpies as Stoke won 1-0 at the Britannia.

Krul's countryman Erik Pieters scored his first goal as a Stoke player and it appeared to be a mistake. Pieters seemed to be attempting to cross the ball. The goal was not only Pieters' first for Stoke but his first in six years. That about sums up Newcastle's luck recently. The Magpies have lost four in a row and have failed to score in all four of them. It's going to be a busy summer, especially if injured forward Loic Remy isn't brought on full-time from Queens Park Rangers.

Moussa Sissoko will miss out against this weekend as he is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Newcastle have been hit by injuries, and have nothing left to play for this season. Sissoko provided a bit of muscle and drive from midfield that they've been lacking in his absence. How much any of it matters at this point, is debatable.

Goalkeeper, Tim Krul, is expected to return this weekend after missing Newcastle United's last two matches.

Newcastle has conceded eight goals in his absence. While he can't compensate for other injuries, or the mentality of a team with nothing to play for, Krul's return can help Newcastle regain some pride against Stoke City this weekend.

Loic Remy was expected back to face the Potters, but has been ruled out by manager, Alan Pardew.

In Remy's absence, Newcastle have imploded - losing four of five, conceding 12 and scoring just one goal.

In the ten Premier League matches Loic Remy has missed this season Newcastle have scored a total of one goal and Saturday added to their woes as they went down 4-0 to Manchester United.

The home team was booed off the pitch at the end of a match where they only looked like scoring once early on when Papiss Cisse had a sharp header saved by Anders Lindegaard. With Remy's loan from Queens Park Rangers set to expire at the end of the season Newcastle will have a lot of work to do to rebuild an attack that yielded impressive results before Cabaye was sold and Remy was injured.
Apr 5 - 1:13 PM

Alan Pardew was back in the stadium for the first time after his suspension but that proved no help to Newcastle, who lost 4-0 on the road to Southampton.

Newcastle looked like they'd given up on the season and simply played horrendous football. They had no energy, no desire, and no chance in this game. Southampton had 11 shots on target to Newcastle's 2 and they led in almost all statistical categories. Newcastle are in a horrible slump and their players should not be considered for fantasy in any matchup.

Jonas Gutierrez, on loan from Newcastle United, is available for Norwich this weekend after missing time with injury.

It's not clear where Gutierrez fits in with this Norwich side, though he could at least provide cover in a number of positions. In a relegation scrap, I guess any news is good news.

Newcastle goalkeeper, Tim Krul, injured knee ligaments against Everton in midweek, and will be out for the next three matches.

Newcastle have had a bit of an injury crisis recently, and this doesn't help. Robbie Elliot will deputize. Davide Santone is in contention to return against Southampton, and Loic Remy will be back in training next week.

Newcastle United were handled easily by visiting Everton, failing to mount any consistent attack as they fall to the Toffees 0-3.

For the first half and change, despite giving up the opening goal, Newcastle showed some signs of life, especially from Papiss Cisse and Yohan Gouffran, but the Toffee defense did a fine job keeping things solid aat the back and the Magpies could not find that first goal to keep pace. Meanwhile, the same defense that could handle a tame Crystal Palace side a few days ago were not up to the task of stopping Ross Barkley, Romelu Lukaku and Gerard Deulofeu. Newcastle is a bit Jekyll and Hyde these days, but when players like Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy return, they are bit more dependable.

Newcastle got a stoppage time goal from long-slumping forward Papiss Cisse from a Hatem Ben Arfa cross to secure a 1-0 home win.

The match between Newcastle and Crystal Palace was scoreless for 90+ minutes. Crystal Palace had an attempt go close late in the going but it was Papiss Cisse who finally found the net for the Magpies. Both Hatem Ben Arfa, who provided the assist, and Cisse have struggled to contribute to the Newcastle cause this season but both came through big as they combined for the goal in the waning seconds.

Davide Santon has been ruled out of Newcastle United's match against Crystal Palace. Hatem ben Arfa returns to the squad, but Santon has tonsilitis and is unavailable.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will likely deputize at right back again in Mathieu Debuchy's absence, but that devalues the entire Newcastle defence, including goalkeeper, Tim Krul, for their double game-week.

Newcastle United could not find the net against the worst defense in the league, falling to Fulham 1-0.

Newcastle were able to show against Hull City last time out that they were capable of some offensive punch since the departure of Yohan Cabaye, but without Loic Remy leading the line, and the attacking contributions usually provided by Mathieu Debuchy missing as well, there was nothing much happening for the Magpies except for a couple of chances that Fulham keeper David Stockdale was able to handle. Moussa Sissoko, coming off a fine two goal effort, was especially quiet.
