The penultimate fixture of Newcastle United's scheduled Barclays Under-21 Premier League season, at home to Aston Villa, has been moved back by 24 hours.

Willie Donachie and Peter Beardsley's side were due to host the Villans on Monday, 3rd December but the game will now be played on Tuesday, 4th December.

Kick-off remains 7pm at Whitley Park in Benton.

In the New Year, the second-string will be placed in a new group depending on where they finish in the table and a new set of fixtures will then be released.

The Magpies won 2-1 at Villa Park last month with goals from Adam Campbell and Mehdi Abeid.
