Confirmed Newcastle team v Preston – 5 changes…Elliot, Perez, Mitro, Clark, Hayden, Atsu play
The Newcastle team v Preston has just been announced.
A Newcastle victory would mean automatic promotion, with results at the weekend going United’s way.
Brighton’s loss at Norwich also opens up a slim possibility of ending up as champions, with a minimum seven points from three matches needed to match the Brighton (two games remaining) points total – NUFC having a superior goal difference.
Rafa Benitez makes five changes to the team that lost at Ipswich.
Great news to see Ciaran Clark back in the team, Hanley dropping out of the matchday 18.
Big shock is Elliot in for Darlow!
Perez and Mitrovic replace Diame and Murphy.
Whilst Vurnon Anita is at right-back instead of Yedlin.
Elliot, Anita, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Shelvey, Hayden, Atsu, Perez, Mitrovic
Darlow, Yedlin, Mbemba, Colback, Gouffran, Diame, Murphy
