Temporary Toon boss Alan Shearer has warned his Newcastle players they are too reliant on their big names, and that everyone needs to contribute. He said: "They all hold a vital role. The experienced ones, some of them will have been in this position, some of them won't.
"But I am looking to everyone, not just the experienced players. Everyone has got a huge part to play, a massive role.
"But the spirits have been reasonable this week considering we haven't won a game under myself, and hopefully that will change rather soon."
