Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the game against Rotherham United this afternoon and it’s all change for Newcastle once again.

The team is almost what we expected – but we had Colback in for Hayden in defensive midfield.
This is what Rafa said at his press conference yesterday about this game:
“It’s a game tomorrow that obviously we’ll try to win.” “Because of their position, people will say it’ll be easy but it will not be easy.”
“It’s the Championship – we must respect Rotherham.”
“We have little knocks, little things, but I think they will be fine.” Mitrovic still not ready, Ameobi and Sterry in the squad.”
It’s a game we must win to keep pace with Brighton who beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 last night and are back on top of the league 2 points above us.
Howay The Lads!!
