Hughton happy with depth of Newcastle squad

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 Newcastle's strong start to the season.

"Only time will tell, but I think we're better equipped squad-wise than we were last season," he said. "If I looked at the bench on Wednesday, yes Nile is a young one.

"Of course Peter (Lovenkrands) is another, more experienced player.

"We have a bit more experience in defence with Sol Campbell and Steven Taylor.

"Unfortunately Ryan Taylor has gone over on his ankle and he'll be out for a period of time."
