Newcastle have doubts over the fitness of Moussa Sissoko and a host of other key players ahead of the QPR game this weekend.
The Magpies are still in danger of being relegated following Saturday’s goalless draw at West Ham and Alan Pardew’s cause is not being helped by a growing injury list.
Sissoko missed the clash at the Boleyn with a knee problem and Pardew cannot say whether he will recover in time for a must-win game against the already-relegated west Londoners.
“Moussa got injured on Tuesday. We thought he’d be OK,” Pardew told the Chronicle. “It was enough to keep him out though. Whether it keeps him out next week, I don’t know yet.
“We could have done with his power. We’ll have to wait and see. It’s his knee.”
Davide Santon and Massadio Haidara are both struggling with hamstring injuries but Pardew says the latter is unlikely to make the trip to Loftus Road, while Santon could have a chance.
