Newcastle United host newly promoted Bournemouth at St James’ Park, in a game the Magpies will be looking to win.

Bournemouth have enjoyed a mixed bag of results upon their Premier League return, and currently sit 13th in the table.

Newcastle have, by all accounts, had a slow start their first full season under Howe, holding Manchester City to a draw but have not won since the opening day against Nottingham Forest.

Can I watch the game on TV?

To comply with the regulation on televised coverage between 2:45PM & 5:15PM on a Saturday, Newcastle and Bournemouth will not be televised. Further broadcasting rights are restricted for clubs in the UK, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

The 3pm blackout has been in place since the 60s, but people were allowed to legally stream games during the 20/21 season as no fans were allowed in stadiums.

It is believed that the 3pm blackout period has boosted non-league attendances, and there’s no plans to get rid of it.

Can I follow the game?

Despite the game not being on TV, you can keep up with every minute on Gillette Soccer Saturday, hosted by Jeff Stelling.

His panel, and Sky workers at the games give you live and up-to-date information regarding all games in England and Scotland.

Local radio stations in the area may also provide coverage, but this will differ in each area.

How can I watch highlights?

People can tune in to Match of the Day on BBC One to view the highlights of the game. The show is hosted by Gary Lineker, who is usually joined by Ian Wright and Alan Shearer.

Football clubs will also release highlights on either Youtube or their website, but there is no timeframe with this and it will vary from club to club.

Team news

Bruno Guimareas, Callum Wilson and Allan Saint Maximum are facing a race against time as to whether they will all feature. All three are expected to be back around the 17 September and may feature against the south coast outfit.

Bournemouth meanwhile will still be without summer signing Joe Rothwell, who has yet to make an appearance for the club, with Junior Stanislas also on the sidelines. Other than that, the Cherries have no new fresh injury concerns.
