Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton insists he's happy with the depth of his squad.
Hughton maintains that there is enough strength-in-depth to maintain Newcastleâ€™s strong start to the season.
â€śOnly time will tell, but I think weâ€™re better equipped squad-wise than we were last season,â€ť he said. â€śIf I looked at the bench on Wednesday, yes Nile is a young one.
â€śOf course Peter (Lovenkrands) is another, more experienced player.
â€śWe have a bit more experience in defence with Sol Campbell and Steven Taylor.
â€śUnfortunately Ryan Taylor has gone over on his ankle and heâ€™ll be out for a period of time.â€ť
