Pic Special: Preparing For Metalist

Newcastle United's players and staff flew out to the Ukraine on Wednesday morning ahead of Thursday night's Europa League round of 32 second leg meeting with Metalist Kharkiv and wasted no time in getting down to business.

Shortly after touching down, Alan Pardew and Yohan Cabaye headed to the impressive Metalist Stadium for a pre-match press conference.

Then, they were joined by the rest of the group to train on the pitch in sub-zero conditions. Despite the cold, however, the players quickly worked up a sweat with even Pardew joining in as he kept himself warm.

That wasn't an option for Club Photographer Ian Horrocks, but he watched from the sidelines with his long lens to bring nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery.
