NEWCASTLE United will be without Fabricio Coloccini, Cheik Tiote and Rolando Aarons for Saturday’s game against Queens Park Rangers, Alan Pardew has confirmed.

Coloccini is expected to miss at least three games with the calf injury he picked up in the win at West Bromwich Albion.

Tiote, meanwhile, has made just four appearances so far this season due to injury.

Aarons missed the win at the Hawthorns with a hamstring injury, and will again miss out this weekend, while Pardew has described Steven Taylor as a “big doubt” for the game at St James’s Park.
