The St James' Park clash could not be played in the lunchtime slot because of our UEFA Champions League fixture with Galatasaray, in Turkey, on Wednesday.

In last season's visit to the north east, we lost 2-0 in April, soon after beating Eddie Howe's men by the same scoreline at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final.

Of course, the two teams meet before our first league contest of the campaign, as we look to continue our defence of that trophy, against the Magpies, at Old Trafford on Wednesday 1 November.
