Newcastle coach Carver: New lads know importance of Sunderland clash

Newcastle assistant manager John Carver says their new players know how important the derby with Sunderland is.

Carver expects Papiss Demba Cisse to be fit for the match.

He told The Journal: "I know a lot of people have asked whether the foreign lads will know about the derby. Don't worry, we'll make sure they do.

"We've got a few new additions, Papiss in particular. He's finding it hard enough to understand what I'm saying at the minute, no matter what this game means.

"By the time we get to Sunday he'll have a good idea, don't worry about that."
