Newcastle United’s Jack Colback doubt for Crystal Palace clash

ENGLAND CALL ... Jack Colback.
ENGLAND CALL ... Jack Colback.

JACK Colback is a doubt for Newcastle United’s home game against Crystal Palace.

The midfielder is not involved in tonight’s Capital One Cup tie against Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium through injury.

And Colback – who had been set to make his competitive home debut for the club against Palace on Saturday – is rated as doubtful for the fixture by Newcastle manager Alan Pardew.

The 24-year-old, signed from Sunderland this summer, started United’s first two Premier League games.
