It looks like Steve Bruce could be using Isaac Hayden as a right-back with no natural right-backs in the squad today. We’re not sure if it’s going to be 5-3-2 or a 5-2-3 with Joelinton moved out wide.
However, it is a surprise start for Dwight Gayle with Andy Carroll only making the bench. We’ll see both Ciaran Clark and Paul Dummett make their long-awaited returns this afternoon.
The Longstaff brothers will make their second straight start together in the midfield. It’s great to see a couple of local lads in Kelland Watts and Tom Allan make the trip.
This is the starting eleven for our hosts this afternoon.

Most Newcastle fans won’t be expecting too much from this one. However, they will be expecting a better defensive display. We need to cut out the defensive errors that have plagued our recent run of bad form.
Howay The Lads!
