Tavernier hoping for Magpies chance

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is unlikely to make many changes for Friday's Barclays Premier League game against Swansea following his side's 2-0 win over Liverpool last Sunday.

Defender James Tavernier could be in contention after he was recalled from npower League One side MK Dons in a bid to bolster the defence in the absence of Fabricio Coloccini (hamstring) and Steven Taylor (Achilles).

Midfielder Danny Guthrie (calf) is a doubt, with Peter Lovenkrands (thigh), Leon Best, Sammy Ameobi (both knee) and Sylvain Marveaux (groin) still on the casualty list.
