Rafa Benitez has named his Newcastle team v Hull City.

Tonight sets in motion the final four friendlies with only 11 days separating the first and last of them.

Amongst those back home on Tyneside are Matz Sels, Achraf Lazaar and Henri Saivet, whilst Jack Colback and Chancel Mbemba have moved out in recent days.

Mitro is still on extended leave due to his World Cup involvement but reportedly due back to the training ground tomorrow (Wednesday).
