Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits injuries are dragging down their season.

Toon were again beaten on the weekend by Swansea City.

Pardew said: "I can only think of one occasion when I have had everyone to pick and that was Sunderland, when I had all my senior players.

"We need our best players back. We have two tough away games (Southampton and Stoke), but there is no reason why we can't win them."
