Confirmed: Newcastle United v Wolves under-21 line-ups

Here are the Newcastle United and Wolves under-21 sides for this evening's clash.

Newcastle United under-21s: Alnwick, Williams, Ferguson, Abeid, Streete, Satka, Gilliead, Bigirimana, Heardman, Barlaser, Ameobi

Wolves under-21s: Flatt, Rainey, O'Hanlon, Carter, Swan, Iorfa, Weeks, Kellerman, Torras, Ortega, Erdei

Newcastle United will be full of confidence ahead of a game against Wolves as they secured a big win over Reading in their last game.

A hat-trick from Adam Armstrong helped the under-21 side to a 5-2 victory over Reading, which puts them in a strong position heading into the game.

Newcastle can close the gap on Arsenal at the top of the table and also become the highest scorers in division two with a victory.

Wolves are currently lingering in mid-table after a win and a defeat from their first two games of the season.

That win came as a 1-0 victory against Bolton in the side’s last game and that clean sheet will give the side confidence heading into this game.

A win for Wolves would put them onto six points, which will move them into the group of teams hunting down Arsenal near the top of the table.
