Newcastle United v West Ham United preview
4:10pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in Football
West Ham United will look to build on their opening day win over Cardiff City when they head to St. James’ Park to take on an injury-plagued Newcastle United this weekend.
The Magpies were trounced 4-0 by Manchester City on Monday night after a summer of discontent on Tyneside following the re-appointment of former boss Joe Kinnear as director of football.
With Steven Taylor suspended following his sending off at the Etihad Stadium, Alan Pardew could hand homegrown defender Paul Dummett his first start for the club.
There is better news regarding Davide Santon and Cheik Tiote, with both expected to be available, however Massadio Haidara, Jonas Gutierrez, Ryan Taylor and Loic Remy are all unavailable.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is only missing former United striker Andy Carroll and defender George McCartney.
