Peter Lovenkrands and Jonas Gutierrez start on the wings at Bolton today, and Ryan Taylor is trusted with the crucial central midfield role alongside Nicky Butt.
Damien Duff is not even included on the bench this afternoon, so we think he must have a slight niggle or something but Newcastle have an extremely strong bench.
And Ameobi and Martins start up front as half expected, but we’re still a little surprised Shola keeps his place from last week, but Forster, Cacapa, Edgar, Smith, Viduka, Geremi and Carroll make up a very strong looking bench for this afternoon’s game.
This game is massively important to Newcastle’s season, and most Newcastle fans will be looking for all 3 points this afternoon.
