Newcastle take on Norwich this evening in the Premier League in what could be a key game in the relegation battle.
Eddie Howe’s Newcastle are bottom of the league with only six points from their opening 13 games, and remain without a win all season.
The new manager will know what a huge opportunity tonight’s game presents, up against 19th-place Norwich, who Newcastle will leapfrog with victory.
Norwich have steadied the ship in recent weeks with back-to-back wins before the weekend’s goalless draw against Wolves, and Dean Smith will be equally determined to ensure his side land a big blow in the relegation fight.
Here is everything you need to know.
When is the match?
Newcastle vs Norwich kicks off tonight, Tuesday 30 November, at 7.30pm.

What is the team news?
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe will be without suspended duo Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie for Norwich’s Premier League visit to St James’ Park.
Skipper Lascelles and wing-back Ritchie both picked up fifth yellow cards of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Arsenal and must sit out as a result.
Striker Dwight Gayle, who missed the trip to the Emirates Stadium with a hamstring problem, could return, leaving only defender Paul Dummett (calf) on the sidelines.
Norwich will be without defensive midfielder Mathias Normann, who was forced off against Wolves on Saturday with a pelvis problem and is set to see a specialist over the long-standing issue.
Lukas Rupp came on to replace Normann, so could start, while Frenchman Pierre Lees-Melou is also pressing for a recall.
Turkish defender Ozan Kabak has been in full first-team training again following illness, while Christoph Zimmermann (ankle) continues his recovery and full-back Sam Byram (hamstring) is expected to feature for the under-23s on Monday night.
Newcastle provisional squad: Darlow, Dubravka, Manquillo, Murphy, Lewis, Krafth, Fernandez, Clark, Schar, Hayden, Shelvey, S Longstaff, Willock, Hendrick, Fraser, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Joelinton, Gayle.
Norwich provisional squad: Krul, Aarons, Gibson, Hanley, Williams, Gilmour, Rupp, Rashica, McLean, Sargent, Pukki, Gunn, Giannoulis, Omobamidele, Sorensen, Dowell, Cantwell, Lees-Melou, Tzolis, Idah.
Newcastle: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Clark, Lewis, Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Joelinton.
Norwich: Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams, McLean, Rupp, Gilmour, Sargent, Pukki, Rashica.
A huge game between two struggling but gradually improving sides. Newcastle will have a roaring crowd behind them who know the significance of the match, but key suspensions could work against them. Still, we think the Magpies will have just enough. Newcastle 2-1 Norwich.
