Newcastle United will be looking to continue their preparations for the upcoming 2015-16 campaign when they take on Sheffield United in a pre-season friendly this afternoon.
The Premier League club have already made signings, and head coach Steve McClaren will want his players to kick on and step up their fitness levels.
The result in Sheffield will not be a huge concern for Newcastle, although the fans will not like it if they lose to a League One team even in a pre-season friendly.
Newcastle will be aiming for a top-10 finish in the Premier League next season, and it is important that the players start to function together as a team.
It promises to be an interesting game at Bramall Lane, and this is how United and Newcastle will line up:
