Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has made two changes to his starting line-up for Wednesday night's Premier League fixture at Stoke City (7.45pm kick-off).
And Senegalese duo Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse will be hoping for a repeat of their goalscoring actions against Stoke last season. Ba netted a hat-trick in this fixture in a 3-1 win for the Magpies, while Cisse was on target as United triumphed 3-0 on Tyneside.
Stoke City (4-5-1): Asmir Begovic; Ryan Shotton, Ryan Shawcross (c), Robert Huth, Geoff Cameron; Jonathan Walters, Glenn Whelan, Steven Nzonzi, Charlie Adam, Matthew Etherington; Peter Crouch
Substitutes: Thomas Sorensen, Matt Upson, Wilson Palacios, Michael Kightly, Cameron Jerome, Kenwyne Jones
