The pair missed the season's opener at Manchester United on Monday with groin and knee injuries respectively, and while the Dane did not train today and club medics are waiting to see if the former Liverpool midfielder suffers a reaction to the work he did, Hughton is keeping his fingers crossed.

Summer signing Sol Campbell is still working his way towards match fitness, while Danny Simpson and Leon Best (both ankle), Steven Taylor (shoulder) and Dan Gosling (knee) remain on the sidelines.

Magpies (from): Harper, Krul, Perch, R. Taylor, Enrique, Coloccini, Williamson, Barton, Guthrie, Smith, Gutierrez, Routledge, Tavernier, Nolan, Carroll, Lovenkrands, Ameobi, Xisco, Ranger, Vuckic.
