Damien Duff returns to the Newcastle United bench today after more than eight months out with a dislocated foot.

Sam Allardyce makes just one change from the side that started at Fulham last weekend. Mark Viduka comes in for his first start since last month’s home defeat against Liverpool. with captain Geremi making way. Steven Taylor returns from his hamstring injury and is on the bench.

It will be a proud day for Alan Smith, who will be captain today for the second time, having also taken the armband during the Carling Cup tie at Arsenal in September.

TEAMS

Newcastle United:

Shay Given, Habib Beye, Charles N’Zogbia, David Rozehnal, Claudio Cacapa, Nicky Butt, Joey Barton, Alan Smith (c), Oba Martins, Mark Viduka, James Milner
Subs:
Steve Harper, Emre, Damien Duff, Geremi, Steven Taylor

Derby County:
Stephen Bywater, Jay McEveley, Dean Leacock, Kenny Miller, Gary Teale, Steve Howard, Claude Davis, Darren Moore (c), Tyrone Mears, Stephen Pearson, Giles Barnes
Subs: Lewis Price, Eddie Lewis, Benny Feilhaber, Rob Earnshaw, Craig Fagan

    wheres emre! 🙁
    And the mule is upfront, we could lose, only joking cos derby are the worst team ever to grace the premiership.

    Sickened by that line-up, disgusing. Unless milner is part of the midfield 3, then i arent.

    Where is enrique, not even on the bench? Injury?

    Well, if I say so myself it’s going the way I expected so far – 15 minutes in. I just hope I’m right about the rest. I had a feeling that Derby would take the lead but that we’d come back to win, but just hope the last part turns out to be true!
