Freddie Woodman plays for Newcastle for the first time in over two years. He joins Fernandez, Clark, Ritchie, and Gayle as the changes from Doncaster.
There’s no Allan Saint-Maximin in the squad tonight as he is ruled out through illness. Darlow, Shelvey, Dubravka, Joelinton, and Manquillo are also absent from the squad with injuries.
Miguel Almiron has yet to return from holiday while Yoshinori Muto is not involved as his move to Aris Thessaloniki continues to progress. Emil Krafth and Fabian Schar make the bench after returning on Monday.
Midfielder Joe White joins Jack Young and Matthew Bondswell as U23s on the bench. It would be fantastic if the 18-year-old could get an appearance tonight.
Here is who Paul Warne has chosen for the hosts with Dan Barlaser in the starting eleven.
TEAM v @NUFC | Johansson; Harding, Ihiekwe, Wood (C), Wiles; Ogbene, Barlaser, Lindsay, Miller; Smith, Ladapo.
