Newcastle will be without Jermaine Jenas, Scott Parker and Emre against Depor.Newcastle United will be without Jermaine Jenas, Scott Parker and Emre for their clash against Deportivo La Coruna on Wednesday.
Manager Graeme Souness is disappointed about the number of key players at his disposal, but has great faith in the youngsters who will fill the void.
Michael Chopra collected a knock against ZTS Dubnica but is expected to play, leaving only long-term injury victim Titus Bramble unavailable to the Scottish tactician.
Souness is under no illusions regarding their task in the Riazor as The Magpies look to progress into the final of the Intertoto Cup.
"There's no JJ, he's not travelled with us and Parker and Emre aren't with us either," explained Souness.
"Chopra got a bang on his head on Saturday. We'll see how he is, but we're limited.
"It's a long-term one with Titus, other than that I think we've got everyone.
"It's going to be a very difficult game for us. We're asking boys to stand up and do a man's job.
"They've done well so far, but Newcastle have to have more experienced players on the pitch."
