Will Seydou Doumbia get his chance at St James Park tonight, ahead of Swansea on Saturday?
Doumbia: “This is something special. I used to say my dream has always been to play in this championship. Today I’m faced with the reality.”
Doumbia left CSKA Moscow top of the Russian league when their winter break started in December – but things are falling apart now without him after the return to action.
