Steve Bruce says Newcastle United will "be without a chunk of players" for the visit of West Bromwich Albion, but he has kept his cards close to his chest about his team selection.
West Brom report no fresh injury concerns, but will be unable to call on Matheus Pereira who is suspended. Conor Townsend (knee) remains sidelined.
No team have scored with a higher percentage of their shots on target than Newcastle United this season, with 42.9 per cent, after 12 strikes from 28 attempts.
Callum Wilson has been involved in 75 per cent of Newcastle’s 12 Premier League goals, netting seven times and adding two assists.
West Brom are looking to win consecutive league matches at St James' Park for the first time since 1966 after their 1-0 victory at Newcastle in April 2018.
Conor Gallagher can become the first English player to score in three consecutive PL appearances for West Brom since Geoff Horsfield in August 2005.
