Newcastle have released images from today’s training session. Things may be a lot better than even Bruce hinted at in his press conference this morning. Both Emil Krafth and DeAndre Yedlin have joined Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey, and Allan Saint-Maximin in full training.
While Jonjo and Allan have been ruled out for tomorrow, maybe Emil or DeAndre can be involved at right-back.

Steve Bruce already confirmed this morning that Jamaal Lascelles will, at the very least, make the bench for tomorrow’s replay. We would also expect Matt Ritchie to get his first start since August.
Isaac Hayden had to fill in at right wing-back at Wolves on Saturday, so seeing Krafth and Yedlin back in training could be a sign that we’ll have a natural right-back available tomorrow.
The other great news is that Steve Bruce still has four youngsters involved in the training session, with three of them being local lads. Tom Allan, Lewis Cass, Kelland Watts, and Elias Sorensen all continue to train with the first team.
We’d expect at least one, if not all, of Allan, Cass, or Sorensen to make the bench for the FA Cup.
