Toon in training: Getting set for Swansea

NUFC Logo Newcastle United FC

Newcastle United will be looking to make it three successive victories in all competitions when they face Swansea City at St. James' Park on Saturday.

The Magpies got 2018 off to the perfect start with a 1-0 Premier League win at Stoke City on New Year's Day and they followed it up with a 3-1 win over Luton Town in the Emirates FA Cup last week.

The players have been back on the training pitch this week to prepare for the Swans' visit to St. James' Park and club photographer Serena Taylor has captured this exclusive gallery for nufc.co.uk...
