Krul set to miss games

Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul is set for a spell on the sidelines after being ruled out of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Southampton.

Tim won't play, he's out for these next two or three games for sure, so Rob Elliot will come in.

He has made his international squad and he is keen to stay in that squad and he needs to play, so the opportunity lands at his feet.

Rob is a confident goalie and he will look to take that on.

– Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew
