This is who Steve Bruce has named for tonight’s friendly at Burton Albion. It has five changes from Tuesday’s draw at Rotherham.

The obvious omission from tonight’s squad is Callum Wilson, who has a slight knock. Paul Dummett is also not involved. Joelinton returns from his thigh injury. Bruce again has to field a cobbled together side as Ryan Fraser partners the Brazilian up top.
Fabian Schar and Emil Krafth get starts after making their pre-season debuts at Rotherham. Woodman gets another shot in goal with both Mark Gillespie and Dan Langley on the bench.
Newcastle are missing a lot of firepower without Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin. Young guns Tom Allan, Jack Young, and Joe White are back on the bench as Bruce’s squad remains depleted.
Here is the side Burton manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will field for The Brewers.
