Tonight we will find out if we manage to make the Europa League proper as we face Atromitos in the second leg of our third round Europa League qualifying tie.
With the scores level at 1-1 it would be fair to assume that Newcastle have the advantage after grabbing that vital away goal in Athens last week, but we’ve been here before remember so forgive me if I put the champagne on ice for a while longer.
We’re actually on the box tonight which is great for fans who can’t go. I’m holed up in Belgium right now so a trip to St James’ Park is way out of the question for me, but if you can go then why not get yourselves down there? The tickets are cheap and are still available right up until kick-off so you still have a bit of time to get there providing you live locally of course!
I won’t waffle on too much as there isn’t really much need to. You’ve most probably read the preview, or at least another preview, and I assume most of you are au fait with the relevant injury and suspension news? Team news will of course be published below as and when it becomes available.
As mentioned earlier, the game is on TV, on ITV4 to be precise, but if you can’t get it through your TV for whatever reason or you don’t like in the UK,then why not throw a few streams into the comments section below in an effort to help out fellow NUFC fans?
Howay the lads!
