Newcastle United look set to be handed a welcome boost for Saturday’s game as Fabricio Coloccini returns from a hamstring injury to face the Swans at the Liberty Stadium.

The Argentine defender has been sidelined for the past 10 days but manager Chris Hughton is confident that he’ll back in the side to face Swansea City:

‘Fabricio will be fine for Swansea,’

‘That’s a boost because he has been a consistent performer this season.’

Hughton also expects defender Ryan Taylor to play despite struggling with a hamstring problem recently, but former Manchester United midfielder Nicky Butt is out with a thigh injury.
