As expected Sam Allardyce names an unchanged team for today’s game with Birmingham City.

Big Sam also names the same five substitutes with Abdoulaye Faye (calf) and Stephen Carr (hamstring) still out.

Birmingham are without club captain Damien Johnson as he continues his comeback from a hamstring lay-off.

Midfielder Gary McSheffrey has a minor hip injury but has recovered in time, while forward Garry O’Connor (groin) returns to the bench.

TEAMS

Newcastle United: Shay Given, Habib Beye, Charles N’Zogbia, Steven Taylor, David Rozehnal, Nicky Butt, Joey Barton, Geremi (c), James Milner, Alan Smith, Oba Martins
Subs: Steve Harper, Jose Enrique, David Edgar, Emre, Mark Viduka

Birmingham: Maik Taylor, Stephen Kelly, Mathew Sadler, Rafael Schmitz, Liam Ridgwell (c), Sebastian Larsson, Cameron Jerome, Gary McSheffrey, Mehdi Nafti, Daniel De Ridder, Fabrice Muamba
Subs: Colin Doyle, Garry O’Connor, Mikael Forssell, Stuart Parnaby, Olivier Kapo

Referee: Rob Styles
Attendance: tbc

    Would have liked to have seen Zog on LHS, Milner on RHS and Enrique @ LB, but saying that just make sure we don’t pull Smudger back into midfield again like Wednesday night

    That was such an awful goal to concede. The ball travelled through the ball so far and could have been dealt with so easily. Rozenhal again. Just shocking play. Why do we always do it.

    Our defense can’t handle Jeromes pace, either we tighten up big time or he’ll probally find himself with more then one chance today.
