GRETAR Steinsson has been forced to drop out of the reckoning for Wanderers' sell-out home clash with Newcastle with a sickness bug.

The Icelander doesn't make the squad, with the only other change to the Whites' starting line-up coming on the opposite side of defence, where Paul Robinson steps in for the injured Marcos Alonso.

Sam Ricketts also makes the bench, having been out of action with a ruptured Achilles since February.

David Wheater also sits on the bench after completing a four-game suspension.

Newcastle make three changes from the side that lost to West Brom last time out with James Perch, Haris Vukic and Davide Santon making way for Mike Williamson, Ryan Taylor and Yohan Cabaye.

Wanderers: Jaaskelainen, Boyata, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Mark Davies, Muamba, Reo-Coker, Petrov, Klasnic, Ngog.

Subs: Bogdan, Eagles, Tuncay, Kevin Davies, Ricketts, Pratley, Wheater.

Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Taylor, Obertan, Cabaye, Tiote, Obertan, Best, Ba.

Subs: Ben Arfa, Perch, Shola Ameobi, Sam Ameobi, Vukcic, Ferguson, Elliot.

Referee: Peter Walton.
