Campbell a no-show for Newcastle this weekend

Newcastle will be without injured veteran defender Sol Campbell for their weekend Premier League clash against West Ham.

The 36 year old made his league debut for the Magpies in their 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, although he did not feature against Wigan last weekend.

Campbell has a thigh injury and Hughton is not convinced whether he will be fit enough to face former club Arsenal on October 30.

"Sol is struggling with a thigh injury and is out of West Ham, we are not sure he will be okay for Arsenal either but we are hopeful for Sunderland," Hughton told the Evening Chronicle.
