Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says the club's current injury crisis is hampering his team's performances this season.
The Magpies - who have ten first-team players missing - are 15th in the Premier League table after losing their last three league games in a row. The club were also knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Brighton Saturday.
Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at the Amex stadium, Pardew said: "We just need to get our best players back, and quickly because of the Premier League. We need to sustain ourselves in that and make sure we're a Premier League team next year.
"Regardless of how big a club we are, we're in danger and we need to get our best players on the pitch.
"I'm afraid that team, if I'm honest, is a shadow of the team we can put out. So we need to work hard and try and get our bodies back."
