Speaking ahead of the game, Steve Diamond said: "We have a lot to play for this weekend in front of a big crowd, we need to perform better than we have done in the past couple of games. We’ve got to deliver on Saturday, and get the best performance out of the lads, and with it being Mark Cueto’s last home game there is a bit of extra bit of motivation & incentive in the game."
Tom Brady added: "There are a handful of lads who are making their last appearances for the club, and we’re looking to give them a good send off. We are expecting a good game against Newcastle; we know what they are capable of producing if we give them a chance!"
There will be a welcome return of the Blues Brothers tribute act performing live pre-match outside the fans bar, and £3 a pint of Fosters all day. Please note with the roadworks in place on the M60 and on the A57, supporters are advised to make every effort to arrive at least two hours prior to kick off.
