The Newcastle team v Preston has just been confirmed.

Newcastle kicking off their third pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon at 3pm.

The game will be Steve Bruce’s first in charge on the touchline.

So far we have seen an embarrassing 4-0 hammering by Wolves over in China, which then saw improvement when beating West Ham 1-0 with a Muto goal.

Preston kick off their Championship season next weekend and so should give Newcastle a decent test this afternoon.

Both Joelinton and Almiron are on the bench, amongst the 14 subs named.

Many changes set to be made, potentially a whole different 11.

It is Matty Longstaff who starts and not brother Sean, who is one of the subs.

Notable absentees from the squad are Dwight Gayle who had a calf injury in China and presumably that continues to affect him.

Whilst no sign of Martin Dubravka as well.

This is who Steve Bruce starts with:

Woodman, Manquillo, Fernandez, Schar, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, (M) Longstaff, Aarons, Muto

Subs

Darlow, Clark, Ki, Lascelles, Murphy, Joelinton, Colback, Almiron, Sterry, (S) Longstaff, Sorensen, Cass, Watts, Allan
