If Newcastle do get past Morecambe, the following midweek (week commencing Monday 28 September) would see them play their Carabao Cup fourth round opponents.
After completing four rounds by the end of September, there is then a three month wait for round five, with games to be played in the week commencing Monday 21 December.
The one-legged semi-finals are then in the first week of January 2021, with the Carabao Cup final on Sunday 28 February.
