It looks like Isaac Hayden, Grant Hanley, Paul Dummett and Daryl Murphy are all fit to play tomorrow against Wigan Athletic at home.
It seems that only Ciaran Clark and DeAndre Yedlin (plus Rolando Aarons and Jamie Sterry) are still not fit, with Ciaran picking up that knee injury against Fulham almost three weeks ago.
American right back DeAndre Yedlin may be out a few more weeks with his thigh injury.
Isaac Hayden and Dwight Gayle – could both start tomorrow
The other good news Rafa delivered today was that Dwight Gayle has looked good in training and looks fully over his hamstring problems; that could be really good news for Newcastle.
If we can get Dwight scoring goals again in these final eight games of the season we should be good for promotion – but it’s still by no means a certainty.
Here’s the side we think Rafa will start tomorrow in a game we have to win.

We have Dwight Gayle starting again and Isaac Hayden back in the team after he has been out for several weeks with that ankle injury of his.
We put Perez in the number 10 position in preference to Mo Diame and hopefully Ayoze will be in goal-scoring form tomorrow.
What team would you start tomorrow?
