The Magpies have won their last two outings in the Premier League, and will be looking to make it three on the bounce when they face the Whites for the first time in the top flight since 2004.

Steve Bruce’s men have endured a tough spell recently due to a spate of absences brought about by positive Coronavirus tests, but still managed to put in an assured display in a 2-1 win over West Brom at the weekend.

That result leaves the Toon Army with 13th in the table, one place and three points better off than Marcelo Bielsa’s men, but also with the luxury of a game in hand.

Bruce should be able to welcome back a couple of key players for Wednesday’s clash, but may have to rest a couple more.
