Pic Special: Smiles Ahead Of Seagulls
On Saturday, Newcastle United entertain high-flying Brighton & Hove Albion in the Sky Bet Championship (5.30pm kick-off).
The match sees the Magpies pitted against the Seagulls who, under the guidance of ex-United boss Chris Hughton, are one of the early pacesetters in the second tier.
But Newcastle are hot on their heels and manager Rafa Benitez put his side through their paces for the final time ahead of the fixture on Friday morning.
Capturing the best of the action for this exclusive gallery of images was Club Photographer Serena Taylor.
