Newcastle v Norwich

23rd September (3pm)

Referee - Neil Swarbrick


Newcastle return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon, when Norwich City are the visitors to St.James' Park for a non-televised fixture which kicks off at 3pm.

    Tickets remain on sale from the Newcastle United Box Office in person, by phone and online. Due to the Canaries not being able to sell their allocation, tickets in Level 7 of the Leazes End have gone on offer. Unsold seats in the adjacent sections are available for £15 adults, £10 OAPs and students and £5 for U18s. If you are not attending, get yourself along with these cut-price deals!

    Ryan Taylor, Danny Simpson, Tim Krul and Cheick Tiote all remain out through injury. Fabricio Coloccini remains doubtful after picking up his injury whilst on international duty.

    Alan Pardew will again watch proceedings from the stand as he completes a two-game touchline ban.

    Chris Houghton makes his first professional return to St James' Park since his last home game while at Newcastle; that game was all the way back in November 2010 with a 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

    Since returning to the top-flight with Norwich after his stint in charge of Championship side Birmingham City, Hughton and his assistant Colin Calderwood have seen the Canaries draw three and lose the other of their four Premier League games.
    Kicking off with a 5-0 towsing at Fulham, a 1-1 home draw with QPR was then followed by a similar scoreline away to Spurs and a goalless draw against West Ham at Carrow Road last Saturday.

    In the last 10 against Norwich, Newcastle have:

Won 6

Drawn 2

Lost 2
