Striker Connolly has been sidelined since the turn of the year with a niggling groin problem while an ankle injury kept has midfielder James out for the past month.

But both have resumed full training this week and should be in the match-day party.

Winger Lee Holmes will be missing for another fortnight as he rests a groin problem and veteran full-back Graeme Murty is struggling to play again this season after undergoing ankle surgery last month.

Alan Pardew's side slipped 16 points off the play-off pace following last weekend's surprise defeat at Tranmere which brought their eight-match unbeaten run to a halt.
