Newcastle boss Hughton has no doubts over Krul quality

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has no doubts going with Tim Krul in Steve Harper's absence.

Harper, 35, underwent surgery to repair his damaged shoulder ligament on Thursday and is unlikely to play again until December.

Hughton said: "That confidence has really been built on not just the fact that when he has come in, he has done very well, but on what we have seen here from him over the period of time he has been here.

"That's the biggest aspect because we haven't seen him so much as regards the first team on the football pitch.

"But we are very confident in his ability and we are quite sure he will cope very well."
