This is what Turner has had to say
    • 13:15 Newcastle striker Andy Carroll will head into the derby clash with arch-rivals Sunderland carrying the hopes of the Geordie nation squarely on his broad shoulders. He will do so having put his off-field problems behind him and with a match-winning display at West Ham last weekend under his belt. However, team-mate Shola Ameobi knows only too well how intense the weight of expectation can be. Story in full
    • 13:10 Newcastle boss Chris Hughton will attempt to bring an "interesting" week to a rousing conclusion by masterminding a derby triumph.

    • 12:40 TEAM NEWS: Newcastle boss Chris Hughton will welcome back his big guns for Sunday's clash. Hughton rested nine of his stars for the midweek Carling Cup tie with Arsenal as only goalkeeper Tim Krul and central defender Mike Williamson were retained. Sol Campbell (thigh) misses out, as do long-term absentees Steve Harper (shoulder), Leon Best (ankle), Hatem Ben Arfa (double leg fracture) and Dan Gosling (knee). There will be no place in the squad for fit again local boy Steven Taylor.
    • 12:35 Sunderland left-back Kieran Richardson has finally shaken off the hamstring injury he suffered in the Carling Cup defeat by West Ham in September and is available. Winger Ahmed Elmohamady is also fit despite suffering a foot problem in last weekend's 1-0 win over Aston Villa. David Meyler (knee) has trained all week, but the game will come too soon for him, while Fraizer Campbell (also knee) remains on the sidelines and Andy Reid has joined Sheffield United on loan.
