Former Norwich player Dave Watson will look for his Newcastle youngsters to overcome the Canaries on Saturday morning

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

After the disappointment of seeing Monday's game at Norwich postponed, Newcastle's under-18s will get the chance to take on the Canaries on home soil on Saturday (kick-off 11am).

Former Norwich player Dave Watson's side beat Aston Villa 2-1 last time out and are without Kyle Cameron, Adam Armstrong and Daniel Barlaser, who are representing their countries at the Montaigu Tournament in France.

Injured pair Ryan McKinnon and Liam Smith are also missing again but there is a welcome return for Lewis Aird, who had been sidelined in recent weeks.

Dave Watson is also able to call upon goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and forward Alex Gilliead little over a day after they returned from England under-17 duty. Both played the full game against Slovenia on Friday as the Young Lions won 2-1.

Admission at Little Benton is free and spectators are welcome.

The squad is: Rolando Aarons, Lewis Aird, Sam Busby, Lee Desmond, Ben Drennan, Macaulay Gillesphey, Alex Gilliead, Andy Hall, Brad Halliday, Alex Kitchen, Steven Logan, Greg Olley, Jonathyn Quinn, Callum Roberts, Jamie Sterry, Freddie Woodman.
