Toon in training: Magpies on Red alert

Manchester United are the visitors to St. James' Park on Saturday - and Matty Longstaff, who scored the winner for Newcastle United in the same fixture last season, was back in training on Thursday.

The midfielder - who also scored at Old Trafford last December - has yet to play this season due to a thigh problem, but he was joined on Thursday by Paul Dummett and Ciaran Clark, who are also closing in on returns from their respective injuries. 

Jamal Lewis was also able to train ahead of the weekend despite picking up a knock on international duty with Northern Ireland, while Allan Saint-Maximin had a spring in his step after signing a new long-term contract on Wednesday. 

Spirits were evidently high after the Magpies' strong start to the season, and the team spirit was there for all to see in a finishing session towards the end of Thursday morning's session. Serena Taylor brought nufc.co.uk this gallery.
