It was good news/bad news for Newcastle fans on Tuesday morning.
The Oxford FA Cup match has now totally sold out, home fans selling out within 36 hours of Newcastle winning their Birmingham replay and now the last of NUFC’s 1,800 allocation has gone.
Better news though with the trip to Molineux.
All two and a half thousand tickets had been snapped up but now Wolves have handed Newcastle fans a bonus 850 tickets.
The game is two weeks on Saturday (Saturday 11 February) and live on Sky Sports with a teatime (5.30pm) kick-off, the team now set to have the backing of just under 3,350 supporters.
It will of course also be the first time the two teams will meet after the five game suspension Jonjo Shelvey recently served, after an incident during the game at St James Park.
Interesting to see how the Wolves players and crowd react to the rematch with the Newcastle playmaker, plus of course most importantly, how Jonjo Shelvey himself handles the situation.
Newcastle will look to get points on the board from consecutive home matches with QPR and Derby, before then facing Wolves and Norwich away – only three days apart.
