Anthony Gardner returns to the squad for the trip to Newcastle on Saturday, while Mauricio Taricco remains absent.
Gardner has been suffering with a niggling foot injury over the pre-season campaign but has been passed fit for the St James Park encounter. Taricco was close to fitness following an abductor problem and it now seems likely that Philip Ifil will retain his place after impressing against Liverpool in the Premiership opener last weekend.
Midfielder Mark Hughes has been added to the squad.
Squad: Paul Robinson, Kasey Keller, Phil Ifil, Anthony Gardner, Ledley King, Noureddine Naybet, Erik Edman, Thimothee Atouba, Jamie Redknapp, Michael Brown, Pedro Mendes, Mark Hughes, Sean Davis, Johnnie Jackson, Jermain Defoe, Fredi Kanoute, Edson Silva.
