NUFC Logo Newcastle United FC

Leicester City are the visitors to St. James' Park in Saturday, when Newcastle United will celebrate its 125th anniversary.

But Rafa Benítez and his players are determined to pick up a valuable three points and ensure that the pre-match celebrations continue long after the final whistle.

Skipper Jamaal Lascelles was back in training this week while Paul Dummett and Christian Atsu could have a chance of figuring at the weekend.

Club photographer Serena Taylor brought nufc.co.uk this gallery from Thursday's training session.
