Newcastle veteran Campbell set for Chelsea start

Sol Campbell is set for a first Premier League start for Newcastle United.

The Daily Mail says Campbell's first Premier League start for Newcastle United moved a step closer on Wednesday after team-mate Mike Williamson became the club's second defender to be handed a three-match ban for hitting Bolton striker Johann Elmander.

Campbell and former England Under 21 captain Steven Taylor are both in line to face champions Chelsea at St James's Park on Sunday as stand-ins for first choice defensive pair Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini.
