With NUFC’s Premier League fixtures kicking off in only 11 days against Southampton, Steve McClaren made 10 changes for York City, from what looked like basically his first team (of available players) at Sheffield United on Sunday.
Big news: Aleksandar Mitrovic was one of the ten changes for Newcastle in the following team:
Darlow, Bigirimana, Lascelles, Satka, Ferguson, Perez, Abeid, Gouffran, Aarons, de Jong, Mitrovic
(Sunday’s team v Sheff Utd: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Taylor, Haïdara, Anita, Colback, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Perez, Cissé)
On the bench: Elliot, Kemen, Louis Johnson, Lewis Suddick
However, not exactly a dream debut for the Serbian so far, with York leading 2-0 at the break!
Watch the second goal below, great finish but just how slow and poor does Jamaal Lascelles look on this one….
