It appears that Newcastle have sold 4,000 tickets in the last 24 hours for the game against Preston North End tonight and there will be at least 44,000 in attendance at St. James’ Park.
That’s a massive crowd for a mid-week League Cup tie.
And Newcastle have also announced the cash turnstiles will not be open for this game – it’s an all ticket game.
