Meanwhile, Reading midfielder Tyler Frost is also set to feature for Elliott Dickman’s side against the Magpies having been handed a start in the defeat to West Ham United last week.

There is no place in the side for Benji Kimpioka, who misses out on the second game in succession, while first-team midfielder Ethan Robson isn’t handed an opportunity - despite having been deprived of game time in recent weeks after returning from a loan spell with Grimsby Town.
