What would your Newcastle front two be at Preston? Vote now

4 years ago

Preston v Newcastle v Brentford is coming up on Saturday, a quick rematch against a club who United smashed six past on Tuesday night – sending us into a quarter-final at Hull City.

That League Cup match saw Simon Grayson and Rafa Benitez make 16 changes between them and so Saturday’s Championship match looks set to have a very different look, though hopefully of course the same outcome.

Predictably, after that six goal smashing, most talk amongst supporters has been about who should fill the front two positions when Newcastle visit Deepdale.

Two goals each for Mitrovic and Diame, whilst sub Perez scored as a late sub.

Saturday against Ipswich, Ayoze Perez got two when given his chance playing with/behind Dwight Gayle, whilst Newcastle’s top scorer himself had scored seven goals in four games before last Saturday.

Listed below we have seven options for you to choose from, six of them (excluding Murphy who hasn’t played) have scored in the last month – a total of 16 goals between them, starting with that comeback against Norwich in late September.

Newcastle are clear top scorers in the Championship but which two of these seven players would you play as your front pair?
