Almiron’s Vori Vori Vajigel Lovers v Burnley

Newcastle go in search of a fourth successive home league victory this evening when Burnley visit St. James’ Park this evening.  It’s an 8pm kick-off live on BT Sport, altered from the original 7.45pm start on the Wednesday.
Following on from a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor in November, the Magpies are looking to complete a first league double over Burnley since the 1954/55 season.
NUFC: There are no new injury problems for Rafa Benitez following Saturday’s victory over Huddersfield with Ciaran Clark still missing.
However Jonjo Shelvey could be in contention for a recall after recovering from injury.

The Clarets defeated Spurs 2-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday to make it eight games unbeaten in the PL (five wins and three draws) since a 1-5 home loss to Everton on Boxing Day. Peter Crouch has played just once for Burnley since arriving in the January transfer window, a 14 minute substitute appearance. The 38 year-old scored his first goal against us way back in 2001 for Aston Villa and has also netted for Southampton, Liverpool and Stoke City in the PL when facing Newcastle (failing to do so when coming up against us for Portsmouth and Spurs).
