Pic Special: Magpies Prepare For Bluebirds

Jonas Gutierrez and Shola Ameobi were both back with the main group as Newcastle trained on Friday morning ahead of the following day's trip to Cardiff.

The experienced pair have been missing in recent weeks through injury but are now hoping to be involved for the game in South Wales.

Another man back on the training pitch was Ryan Taylor - although the sidelined star was only there in a watching brief, with his own comeback still some way off.
