Football - Pantilimon set for cup run-out

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is expected to make changes for his side's Capital One Cup fourth round trip to Newcastle.

PA Sport Report

Number two goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon is expected to replace Joe Hart, as in the previous round, but there has been speculation the game could be the start of an extended run for the Romanian.

Captain Vincent Kompany (groin) remains a fitness concern after three games out and Martin Demichelis could continue in central defence. Midfielder Jack Rodwell, again hampered by hamstring problems of late, is thought to be in contention.
