The Magpies play their first Saturday 3pm game at St. James' Park since last April when The Swans visit Tyneside for a non-televised game this afternoon. 

Tickets remain on public sale wth L7 seats for £20 adults, £15 for seniors and students and £10 for juniors. The L6 Leazes family ticket offer (2 adults, 2 juniors) is £68.

Captain Fabricio Collocini serves the secong of his three match ban following his sending off at Liverpool. While Yohan Cabaye and Jonas Gutierrez will not feature through injury. However, fortunately Cheick Tiote comes back into the squad after serving his three match ban.

Tiote, Tim Krul and Davide Santon were all unused substitutes in friendly internationals on Wednesday evening, while Shane Ferguson played the full 90 minutes for Northern Ireland in Belfast and Shola Ameobi had a 30 minute outing for Nigeria in the USA.

Sammy Ameobi has trained since injured prompted him to withdraw from England's U21 squad, while neither Demba Ba or Papiss Cisse answered callups from Senegal. 

Romain Amalfitano also joined in the session at Darsley Park showing no ill effects from the knock that caused his substitution in Monday's reserve team game. Ryan Taylor, Dan Gosling, Haris Vuckic, James Perch and Adam Campbell are all currently sidelined by injuries.

In the absence of both our Argentineans, Steven Taylor takes the captain's armband - with Alan Pardew spouting some guff about his on and off field maturity. Presumably then it was a different Steven Taylor who had a strip torn off him for his inflammatory pre-derby comments..... 

Midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung is hamstrung, Neil Taylor is a long-term absentee with ankle problems and fellow defender Chico Flores is back training after overcoming a thigh problem.

Danny Graham may be fit following a back problem that ruled him out of Swansea's trip to Southampton. Leroy Lita was recalled from his loan spell at Birmingham City, however, injury problems have also ruled him out.

I'm the last 10 against Swansea at St James' Park, Newcastle have:

Won 6
Drawn 2
Lost 2
