Dave Watson's under-18s are looking to make it six wins in a row when they host Stoke City on Saturday morning

Newcastle's under-18s are looking to make it six wins in a row when they host Stoke City on Saturday morning.

Kick-off at Little Benton has been moved forward from 11am to 10.30am and Dave Watson's side are fresh from a 2-1 win at Manchester United last weekend.

That followed league wins against Wolves and Sunderland sandwiched between FA Youth Cup victories over Barnsley and Sunderland.

Rolando Aarons and Adam Armstrong were on target last time out but neither are available for the visit of the Potters, with the under-21s in action at Sunderland on Monday evening.

However leading scorer Jonathyn Quinn is involved.

Defender James Atkinson could make his under-18s debut while midfielder Liam Smith continues his comeback from a back problem.

Watson is yet to make a decision on which goalkeepers to include in his squad, with Jonathan Mitchell, Freddie Woodman, Brendan Pearson and Paul Woolston all in contention.

The squad is: James Atkinson, Daniel Barlaser, Macauley Booth, Jamie Cobain, Ben Drennan, Liam Gibson, Andy Hall, Olivier Kemen, Joe Kerridge, Adam Laidler, Jonathyn Quinn, Liam Smith, Jamie Sterry, Callum Williams.
