Pic Special: Queens Park Rain-gers

The rain couldn't halt Newcastle's preparations for Saturday's big game against Queens Park Rangers - although there was more than a little surface water at United's Benton base.

Hats and scarves were needed to battle the biting wind but despite the conditions, Sammy Ameobi still managed a smile while Gabriel Obertan was a notable presence on the training pitch after recovering from a toe injury.

The Magpies will hope to make a splash against Harry Redknapp's side at the weekend and bringing nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
