Newcastle boss Hughton happy to back young Krul

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton is unlikely to seek an emergency goalkeeper signing follow Steve Harper's shoulder op.

It's been confirmed Harper will be sidelined for 12 weeks.

It means the player is unlikely to figure for Newcastle's first team again until the middle of December - and is likely to mean an extended run in the side for Tim Krul.

Manager Chris Hughton will use Swedish keeper Ole Soderberg as Krul's understudy.
