CHEIK Tiote and Yohan Cabaye both return to the Newcastle United starting line-up for this afternoon's Premier League game with Wolves.

Tiote has missed almost a month because of his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, while Cabaye has been forced to sit out the last three matches as a retrospective punishment for a foul that was originally missed in the FA Cup defeat to Brighton.

The pair are joined in the starting line-up by Ryan Taylor, who also returns to action after a brief injury lay-off.

The three players to miss out from Newcastle's last fixture - a 5-0 thrashing at Tottenham - are James Perch, Danny Guthrie and Gabriel Obertan.

NEWCASTLE (4-4-2): Krul; Simpson, Coloccini, Williamson, Santon; R Taylor, Tiote, Cabaye, Gutierrez; Ba, Cisse.

Subs: Elliot (gk), Perch, Ferguson, Guthrie, Obertan, Ben Arfa, Shola Ameobi.

WOLVES (4-5-1): Hennessey; Zubar, Berra, Stearman, Ward; Foley, Edwards, Henry, O'Hara, Jarvis; Doyle.

Subs: De Vries (gk), Craddock, Kightly, Ebanks-Blake, Hunt, Johnson, Milijas.
