Pic Special: The Calm Before The Storm

Newcastle United's stars managed to avoid the worst of Thursday's stormy weather, as they stepped up preparations for Saturday's trip to Southampton.

While it was wet at the Magpies' Benton-based Training Centre, the imminent thunder, lightning and hail was yet to begin as manager Alan Pardew and his coaching staff put his squad through their paces.

With goalkeeper Tim Krul ruled out through a knee injury, 15-year-old Paul Woolston joined in the session - a reward for his outstanding under-21 debut on Wednesday night, when he kept a clean sheet against Manchester United.

And United's first team will be looking for a shut-out of their own at St. Mary's this weekend.
