Debuchy back for Toon

Last Updated: Fri, 29 Nov 2013 07:56

Newcastle will welcome back Mathieu Debuchy for Saturday's home clash with West Brom.

Debuchy missed the 2-1 victory over Norwich after serving a one-match ban and Toon boss Alan Pardew is now left with a dilemma over whether or not to change a winning side.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa switched from central defence, where he had formed an impressive partnership with Mike Williamson, to right-back to cover for Debuchy last weekend.

Fabricio Coloccini played in central defence last weekend and Pardew will be reluctant to drop the Argentina ace.

Elsewhere, Pardew has no fresh injury worries and is likely to stick with the same players and formation that overcame the Canaries.
