Doncaster v Newcastle – Lascelles named Captain but no Wijnaldum in squad

5 years ago

Doncaster v Newcastle tonight sees Jamaal Lascelles one again named Captain but no Gini Wijnaldum in the squad.

The Dutch midfielder watching from the sidelines as he awaits his move to Liverpool…

Interesting to see how the team gets on against a slightly tougher proposition than Bohemian FC on Saturday.

Good to see Adam Armstrong is fit enough to play after missing out on the Under 19s European Championships with England.

However, another notable name missing from the squad is Florian Thauvin, so maybe it won’t just be Gini Wijnaldum about to exit…

Newcastle starting 11:

Sels, Janmaat, Mbemba, Lascelles (c), Anita, Shelvey, Colback, Ritchie, Armstrong, Aarons, Mitrovic.


Darlow, Sterry, Dummett, Gamez, Hayden, Tiote, Saivet, Gouffran, Perez, Gayle

***After naming his team and substitutes, Rafa Benitez belatedly added both Florian Thauvin and Gini Wijnaldum to his bench!
