Four return for Newcastle

Newcastle head coach John Carver has received a series of injury boosts ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Stoke.

Defender Paul Dummett (hamstring) and midfielders Gabriel Obertan (thigh) and Ryan Taylor (knee) are fit and will be included in the squad, while striker Papiss Cisse has a week's training under his belt following his return from the African Nations Cup with Senegal.

Midfielders Siem de Jong (thigh) and Rolando Aarons (hamstring) need a little more time, however.

Newcastle will welcome Stoke to St James' having marked Carver's installation as Alan Pardew's interim replacement until the end of the season with a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Hull, the first since he took temporary charge last month.

He said: "I actually went home and had a cup of tea and chip butty, that's how I celebrated. But you build on it now by getting successive wins. That's what we are aiming for."

Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross has been ruled out of action for up to three weeks with a back injury.

Shawcross had to come off in the first half of last Saturday's 3-1 win over QPR at the Britannia Stadium because of the problem.

Manager Mark Hughes said: "Unfortunately Ryan will be missing now for a couple of weeks.

"That is a big disappointment for us because he is obviously an important player for us and the captain, so he will be a miss.

"We do have other players who are capable of filling in though, so it is a chance for them to come in and make a mark - just as they have done in the past."

Jon Walters, who scored a hat-trick in the QPR game, is a doubt ahead of Sunday's league trip to Newcastle due to a knee problem which has prevented him training this week, although Hughes is hopeful the forward will be available.

The Potters tried before Monday's deadline passed to bring in Tottenham's Aaron Lennon, who instead opted to join Everton on loan. The Staffordshire outfit were told the winger felt he had a better chance of getting first-team football with the Merseyside outfit.

Hughes says he had "a couple of targets" that did not materialise into completed deals, but has also emphasised there is a greater focus on making the most of this summer's window.

Asked if he had been biding his time until summer, Hughes said: "Yes, there is a little bit of that in our thinking.

"It is difficult to get the quality you are really looking for (in the winter window).

"You can put things in place and have conversations that maybe are put to one side and you revisit in the summer when there is less time constraint on your dealings, which can help.

"We have got resources to go into the market, but we'll do it when we think we've got a real opportunity to get the ones we really want - and if it means we have to wait a little bit longer, then so be it."

Late Peter Crouch strike earns Stoke draw at Newcastle

Stoke striker Peter Crouch came off the bench to snatch a draw at Newcastle with a dramatic late equaliser.

The Magpies looked to have won an instantly forgettable game when Jack Colback fired them into a 74th-minute lead.

However Crouch headed fellow substitute Geoff Cameron's 90th-minute cross over keeper Tim Krul to claim a 1-1 draw on Tyneside and deny head coach John Carver back-to-back Barclays Premier League victories and leave Newcastle still awaiting as first home win of 2015.

Colback might not have been on the pitch to put the Magpies ahead had referee Kevin Friend issued a second caution for a 71st-minute foul on Victor Moses.

The goal briefly raised the spirits of a crowd of just 47,763 - the lowest at St James' Park this season - but there were boos on the final whistle with Carver's men having passed up an opportunity to climb into the top 10.

Newcastle ran out knowing a second successive victory would see them leapfrog Stoke with two points separating them in the table before kick-off, and there was little to choose between the sides during a tight opening 45 minutes.

The visitors, who employed Moses and Mame Biram Diouf as wide men in support of striker Jonathan Walters, enjoyed the greater share of possession before the break without creating clear-cut chances until deep into injury-time at the end of the half.

But the Magpies made more of their time on the ball as they attacked largely on the break through the pace of Ayoze Perez and the skill of Remy Cabella and Sammy Ameobi.

Walters fired across the face of goal after turning Mike Williamson with eight minutes gone, but it took a fine reaction save from Asmir Begovic to deny Cabella at the other end three minutes later.

Ameobi slid the ball out to Moussa Sissoko wide on the left and when he crossed to the near post, Cabella glanced a header towards goal, only to see Begovic throw out a hand to turn it past the post.

The Bosnian was quick off his line to prevent Sissoko from reaching Cabella's 27th-minute return pass, but he was more comfortable in collecting Ameobi's well-struck shot on the turn seconds later.

However, he was mightily relieved to see Perez's shot fly inches past the far post two minutes before the break after he had been played in behind defender Marc Muniesa by Cabella.

For all their possession, Stoke, who had Moses, Stephen Ireland and Glenn Whelan booked before the break, did not force Krul into a save of note until the second minute of stoppage time, although it was a good one when it finally arrived as the Dutchman palmed away Diouf's point-blank header after good play by Steven Nzonzi and Ireland.

The second half started in scrappy fashion with neither side able to exercise any real control, although the Magpies almost worked their way in with 53 minutes gone when Perez and Cabella combined only for the final ball to let them down.

If anything, a game of little genuine quality deteriorated further as the half wore on with neither side able to summon up the inspiration to turn it in their favour.

Carver made his move with 25 minutes remaining when he replaced defensive midfielder Vurnon Anita with striker Papiss Cisse.

Gabriel Obertan replaced Cabella as the game limped towards its conclusion and saw Cisse head his 73rd-minute cross well wide of the target, but redemption was close at hand.

The former Manchester United winger's cross seconds later was laid off by Sissoko to Colback, who had been booked for a foul on Marc Muniesa before catching Moses late, and he fired home first time off the inside of the post to snatch victory.

Krul made smart saves from Phil Bardsley and Walters to preserve his clean sheet, but Obertan and Perez both passed up glorious opportunities to cement the win in a frenetic conclusion, and they were made to pay when Crouch rose at the far post to loop a header home despite the best efforts of Fabricio Coloccini on the line.
