Newcastle United name a changed side as they take on Northampton Town in the second round of the 2015/16 Capital One Cup.

Steve McClaren's side are hoping to earn their first win of the season, having drawn two and lost one of their opening three Premier League games. This included an impressive draw at Old Trafford at the weekend.

It is the first time the two teams have met since facing each other in the FA Cup in 1987, a match Newcastle won 2-1.

The occasion is of particular significance to Newcastle new boy Ivan Toney, who signed for the club from Northampton earlier this summer.

Northampton have had a mixed start to their League Two season, winning two and losing two of their opening four games.

In the previous round they beat League One crisis club Blackpool 3-0.
