With both sides yet to earn a point, something has to give at St James' Park.
Meanwhile, Newcastle are yet to taste victory and have been beaten 2-0 and 1-0 by Tottenham Hotspur and Huddersfield in the league respectively and then 3-2 by Nottingham Forest in the cup.
The two teams clash on Saturday where something will have to give in what promises to be one of the most intriguing matches of the new season so far.
And to spice things up further still, former Magpies star and the perennially injured Andy Carroll - who has been linked with a return to his boyhood club - could well feature after nearly six months out with his latest injury.
"I’d love to play (against Newcastle), I’ll be involved... I'm raring to go," Collins told whufc.com.
“Wednesday night was big and a few of the boys probably don’t realise how big it was. I’ve been around the game a long time and a result like that can get the momentum going, and hopefully it can do that.
“We can go to Newcastle and if we can stop the individual errors, with Chicha (Javier Hernandez), Andy and Diafra (Sakho) we can score goals and win games.”
