Newcastle fans have become used to not taking the cup competitions seriously over the course of Steve Brice’s ownership, and now it seems that they’re expecting more nonchalance in the cup, as they have plenty of injury concerns.

Leicester City travel to face the Magpies at St. James’ Park, and with Keith Downie reeling off the club’s injury list, the fans have little faith that they’ll be bothering with the cups this year.
