Toon in training: Magpies looking to make it back-to-back wins
With seven games of the season remaining, West Ham United find themselves on the brink of reaching the Champions League - but Newcastle United will be out to deliver a Hammer blow to those hopes on Saturday.
Steve Bruce's men should be full of confidence after beating Burnley last weekend, hot on the heels of a well-deserved home draw with another side with European aspirations, José Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur.
The return of Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson has undoubtedly boosted the Magpies - although they have been hit by an injury to skipper Jamaal Lascelles, who has joined Isaac Hayden and Ryan Fraser on the treatment table. Fabian Schär is getting closer and closer to resuming full training, but he was working separately to the main group during Thursday's training session.
In the thick of the action was club photographer Serena Taylor, who brought nufc.co.uk this gallery.
