Five players with first-team experience will figure for Newcastle United's under-21s when they take on their West Bromwich Albion counterparts on Monday (kick-off 2pm).

The Magpies travel to the Hawthorns with Gael Bigirimana, Haris Vuckic, Adam Campbell, James Tavernier and Curtis Good all included in Willie Donachie and Peter Beardsley's squad.

Bigirimana has made four Barclays Under-21 Premier League starts so far this term - only goalkeeper Jak Alnwick has made more - while Good, whose senior bow came at Morecambe in the Capital One Cup this term, is back after recovering from injury.

Teenager Adam Armstrong, who has scored four goals in his four appearances this term, will be looking to make it five in five while Jonathyn Quinn has the same record, although three of his goals came in the same game against West Ham.

Two players could make second-string debuts, meanwhile: defender Ryan McKinnon and winger Daniel Barlaser are both untried at this level.

The squad is: Rolando Aarons, Jak Alnwick, Adam Armstrong, Daniel Barlaser, Gael Bigirimana, Adam Campbell, Ben Drennan, Macaulay Gillesphey, Curtis Good, Ryan McKinnon, Jonathan Mitchell, Jonathyn Quinn, Callum Roberts, Remie Streete, James Tavernier, Haris Vuckic.
