Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye is struggling to make Toon's trip to Norwich City on Saturday. The 26 year old has missed almost two months after undergoing surgery to a groin injury in November.

With Newcastle sitting just above the drop zone boss Alan Pardew is eager to see Cabaye return, but not at any cost.

"We cannot bring [players] back, play them for one game and then they are out for five," he told Newcastle's Evening Chronicle.

"It is better if they come back and stay fit. We are on a knife-edge now, with form and everything else."
