Pic Special: City Slickers

Newcastle trained in the rain on Friday morning ahead of their match against Manchester City - and might just have found a new goalscorer.

Gael Bigirimana, still on a high after his stunning first Barclays Premier League strike in the last home game against Wigan, grabbed a hat-trick in a practice match as the players prepared for the visit of the champions.

Not that United are short of a top marksman - leading scorer Demba Ba had his shooting boots on alongside Papiss Cisse while Danny Simpson and James Tavernier also had a sharp pose for our photographer Ian Horrocks, who brings nufc.co.uk this gallery.
