Clark, Fernandez, And Joelinton Get Starts Against Wolves

This is the team Steve Bruce has chosen to battle Wolves today at St James Park. It’s just the one change with Federico Fernandez coming in for the injured Fabian Schar.

Steve Bruce does not change it up too much as he keeps faith in the front three of Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Miguel Almiron. Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto get spots on the bench to provide some attacking options if needed.

This is how the visitors will lineup.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo will pull Leander Dendoncker from the midfield to center-back for the injured Willy Boly. It’s a position the 6′ 2″ Belgian has not played often for Wolves.

This is the start of a four-game stretch that Newcastle need to get points in. Three points is all that will do in this one at St James Park. Last time at home, it was a resounding 1-0 win over Manchester United on the wonderful Matty Longstaff goal.

Let’s hope someone steps up today and gets us the goals we need to get all three points.

Howay The Lads!
