Shearer calls on all Newcastle players to pull their weight

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."
