NEWCASTLE have named an unchanged team ahead of their trip to West Bromwich Albion today.


The Magpies were expected to bring midfielder Joey Barton back into the team after his three-match suspension, but a groin strain rules him out of action and Danny Guthrie keeps his place.

Meanwhile, the Baggies make one change from the team that won 4-1 at Everton a week ago, Youssouf Mulumbu suspended after a late sending off at Goodison Park to be replaced by Somen Tchoyi, who was on the scoresheet at Everton.

WEST BROM (4-5-1): Carson; Jara, Scharner, Tamas, Cech; Thomas, Dorrans, Morrison, Tchoyi, Brunt; Odemwingie. Subs: Myhill (gk), Ibanez, Barnes, Reid, Shorey, Fortune, Cox.

NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-4-2): Krul; Simpson, Campbell, Taylor, Enrique; Routledge, Tiote, Guthrie, Gutierrez; Ameobi, Carroll. Subs: Soderberg (gk), Lovenkrands, Perch, Smith, Best, Kadar, Ranger.

Referee: Mike Dean
