Newcastle fans react on Twitter as Rob Elliott suffers knee injury, make Darlow feelings clear

Karl Darlow Low Quality

Newcastle have a goalkeeping crisis ahead of their weekend clash against Norwich.

Newcastle United's season has gone from bad to worse with the news goalkeeper Rob Elliott was stretchered off in an international friendly with a knee injury.

Elliott lasted just 14 minutes of the Republic of Ireland's game with Slovakia, going down in pain after conceding an opening goal.

The news is desperate for Newcastle United, who are currently in 19th position in the Premier League with nine games left to play.

This weekend they have a big game against Norwich City, who they are hoping to catch and haul further into the relegation mire.

Elliott's injury casts a shadow over their preparations, with Tim Krul already ruled out for the season with a knee injury of his own.

Next in line to start is Karl Darlow, formerly of Nottingham Forest, who made a costly error in December when given an opportunity in the Premier League.

Newcastle fans are not feeling good about Elliott's injury, and are particularly worried about how they will replace him. Here is a look at the reaction on Twitter...
