One week after 1-1 with West Ham at the London Stadium, Newcastle United travel to Brentford on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven league games.

Eddie Howe’s men continued their push away from a relegation dogfight last weekend after securing a 1-1 draw with West Ham United at the London Stadium.

The result meant the Magpies sit just above the relegation zone in 17th, two points above Burnley but playing one more match than the Clarets.

Team news

The Magpies could be without Ryan Fraser and Allan Saint-Maximin after the former limped off against West Ham and the latter is a doubt - neither player was spotted in Wednesday’s training session.

However, Javier Manquillo could be back in contention for a place in Howe’s matchday squad. The Spaniard took part in training on Wednesday.

There are several options to replace both Fraser and Saint-Maximin if not fit for the game, Miquel Almiron the most likely to fill either side of midfield, while wing-back Matt Ritchie could also start on the wing if needed.
