Liverpool to stick with Jones for Newcastle clash

Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones is set to continue against Newcastle United tomorrow.

Jones has stood in ably for Reina and could give the Reds boss a selection poser when the Spain international returns to fitness.

"Pepe Reina and Glen Johnson are still receiving treatment," said Rodgers.

"Glen has been out on the pitch so we'll see how he goes over the next couple of days. Pepe will be likewise.

"We can't rule them out at this stage but I can't say they are fully fit as yet.

"I made it quite clear Pepe was the number one goalkeeper when I came in here and I've really enjoyed working with him.

"Brad was the number three goalkeeper and he has worked his way up to number two and shown what a number two is about; coming in and being solid for the games you are asked to play.

"My decision will be when Pepe is fit. At the minute there is no decision as Brad is clearly playing in goal, he is doing a really good job, working hard to keep himself in the team and give me a decision when Pepe's back."
