Carroll in line to tackle Toffees

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Striker Carroll continues to battle against his ankle injury, but is expected to feature, while Sol Campbell is approaching full match fitness after a third appearance for the reserves last night. Hatem Ben Arfa made his debut as a substitute in last weekend's 2-0 home defeat by Blackpool and will hope for further action. Long-term absentees Danny Guthrie (knee), Danny Simpson (ankle) and Steven Taylor (shoulder) are making progress, but Dan Gosling (knee) and Leon Best (ankle) are still out. Magpies (from): Harper, Krul, Perch, R Taylor, Enrique, Coloccini, Williamson, Campbell, Kadar, Smith, Tiote, Barton, Routledge, Gutierrez, Ben Arfa, Vuckic, Nolan, Carroll, Ameobi, Lovenkrands, Ranger.
