Return of midfield duo Cabaye and Tiote will lift us - Newcastle's Simpson

Newcastle United right-back Danny Simpson is expecting the return of key midfield duo Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote to lift the side next time they step out.

The Toon were easily beaten 5-0 by Tottenham last weekend as Cabaye was absent through suspension whilst Tiote has been away for the African Cup of Nations with runners-up Ivory Coast.

The pair will be back when Newcastle host Wolves on February 25 and Simpson feels their return will have a major impact on the side ahead of the business end of the campaign.

"We will have some big players like Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote back for then and we will look to kick on again," he told the club's official website.

"There's 13 games to go, so bring it on. We've still got a long way to go. In these final games we are going to push on and try to finish as high as we can."
