Rafa Benitez has lost another right-back to injury at Newcastle United.

Benitez will be without Daryl Janmaat for this afternoon's home game against Swansea City.

Janmaat limped out of last weekend's 3-1 defeat to Southampton with a groin injury and also broke two fingers punching the dressing room wall in frustration.

And the 26-year-old is doubtful for Tuesday night's home game against Manchester City.

One option for United manager Benitez would have been Jamie Sterry, the Under-21 side's right-back.

But the tough-tackling 20-year-old suffered a hip injury playing for Peter Beardsley's team last week and is not available.
