Previous meeting

The last time these two sides met was in December 2020, where Newcastle snatched a vital 2-1 victory over West Brom at St James' Park.

 

Miguel Almiron gave The Magpies the lead after just 19 seconds, but Darnell Furlong's strike on the 50 minute mark left the two sides level until eight minutes from time when Dwight Gayle's header condemned his former club to defeat in the North East.

Steve Bruce on the relegation fight

"I’ve got 100% faith in the players. I always knew it was going to be tough.

Sam Allardyce on the magnitude of tomorrow's game

"If we beat Newcastle we’re only six points away from them but, if we lose, we’re 12 points away, which would make life extraordinarily difficult.

Team news - Newcastle

The attacking trio of Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron are all ruled out until the earliest date of next month.

 

Defenders Fabian Schar and Javier Manquillo are also ruled out of tomorrow afternoon's game.

 

Emil Krafth picked up what was described as a "nasty shin injury" by Steve Bruce during the draw at the weekend at Wolves, and has a 50/50 chance of featuring at The Hawthorns.

 

Isaac Hayden is also an injury doubt for tomorrow with an ankle injury.

 

One man who is set to return to the side is defender Federico Fernandez, who has trained all week after fully recovering from a thigh injury.

13:417 months ago

Team news - West Brom

West Brom have no major injury or suspension issues heading into this game other than left-back Kieran Gibbs being a doubt for tomorrow with a neck/shoulder injury that he sustained back in January.
13:337 months ago

Newcastle looking for a return to winning ways

A training ground bust-up, an injury crisis and a failed high court judgement - and some would say that is just an average week on the Newcastle United rollercoaster.

 

Steve Bruce's side undoubtedly head into their biggest game of the season fresh off a 1-1 draw with Wolves, meaning they have only won two of their last 17 games.

 

Three points in the West Midlands tomorrow however will give them a six point buffer from 18th placed Fulham.

13:287 months ago

West Brom seeking a much-needed victory

The games are starting to run out for Sam Allardyce's West  Brom side, with The Baggies now firmly rooted in 19th place after their narrow 1-0 defeat to Everton in midweek.

 

A win against 17th placed Newcastle tomorrow would move them within six points from safety.

13:237 months ago

Kick-off time

West Brom vs Newcastle will be played at The Hawthorns, in West Bromwich, England.

 

The kick-off is scheduled at 12:00 BST.
