Newcastle vs. Rochdale – Team Prediction, Injuries, And Poll Result

This is the lineup we predict Steve Bruce will send out this afternoon. It has three changes from the draw at Molineux with Florian Lejeune, Christian Atsu, and Matt Ritchie getting starts.

Steve Bruce made a comment yesterday where he said he’ll have two youngsters on the bench. Therefore, he’s likely to field a team full of senior players unless he’s playing mind games.

Both DeAndre Yedlin and Emil Krafth were seen training yesterday, so maybe one of them will come in for Isaac Hayden, which could see Isaac move to center-back for either Florian Lejeune or Ciaran Clark.

Jamaal Lascelles will be available for this match so he could get a surprise start, but it’s more probable he’ll be a substitute.

We think that the midfield will consist of the Longstaff brothers for a third straight game.

We do have a nagging suspicion that youngster Tom Allan will make a surprise start on the right-wing. If so, it could be for Miguel Almiron, who must be in need of a rest.

If that’s the case, Atsu could shift to the right side, where he enjoyed a lot of success at Rochdale a few weeks ago.

Joelinton, if declared fit, will get the start ahead of Andy Carroll, who is probably going to be saved for the match against Chelsea on Saturday.

Newcastle Injuries

Allan Saint-Maximin – hamstring, Javier Manquillo – hamstring, Fabian Schar – hamstring, Jonjo Shelvey – hamstring, Yoshinori Muto – hip, Dwight Gayle – groin, Paul Dummett – hamstring, Ki Sung-yueng – undisclosed (late fitness test), DeAndre Yedlin – knee (late fitness test), Emil Krafth – undisclosed (late fitness test), Joelinton – groin (late fitness test

The poll results show that Newcastle fans are very optimistic that we’ll advance to face Oxford at St James Park in a couple of weeks. Of the 1635 total votes, 1306 are projecting a win. While only 17% are expecting a loss.

So let’s hope the majority of fans guessed right, and we will get through to the fourth round. We really could do with a comfortable win as well.

    I see the national press are all over Wilbraham: after Hereford they’ll never let us forget if we don’t win tonight – serves us right for the hapless 2nd half in the first tie!

    Watford’s FA Cup replay with Tranmere has been postponed due to heavy rainfall
    This could be good news for a stream as ESPN will have to find another game

    Cyprien = class player… Another speed merchant, I don’t know of his performances after his injury but when he broke through he looked the business, imo he’s going to the top and it won’t be via SJP unfortunately… Would love to eat humble pie on this one but really can’t see it

    So after all the talk about there being kids in the squad it ends up as only one.

    A few injuries tonight and we will probably see a few on Saturday!!

    I’m surprised you’re pleased to see Atsu.
    Weren’t you labelling him with your current favourite insult ‘coward’ at the weekend?
    Who else are you going to throw under the team bus tonight?
