Match odds

As is normally the case for pre-season friendlies, no match odds are being offered.

Team news

Newcastle left out Brazilian striker Joelinton and Matt Ritchie against Doncaser.

Joelinton hobbled off after just 18 minutes of the recent friendly defeat to York. Bruce said: “He’s got a thigh problem, as you’ve seen, so we weren’t going to risk him. We hope that he’s going to join in on Monday.”

Matt Ritchie missed Newcastle’s last game

As for Ritchie, Bruce added: “Unfortunately, was a little bit stiff this morning after yesterday, and we didn’t take any risks. We won’t take any risks with any of them. It’s pre-season.”

Jonjo Shelvey (calf) is also a doubt.
