Newcastle v Fulham team news

Newcastle: The club has kept details of which players were affected by the recent Covid-19 outbreak away from the public, but Newcastle are certainly getting back to something resembling full strength.

Martin Dubravka may be fit enough to make the bench here, but Paul Dummett, Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles will miss the game. Bruce may decide to bring Jonjo Shelvey back into his midfield, while Dwight Gayle could get the nod up front.

Fulham: Kenny Tete is rated 50/50 to feature here, while Terence Kongolo remains injured.

Boss Parker has no new injury concerns and once again the focus could be on Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has remained on the bench in place of Ivan Cavaleiro in recent games.

Our prediction: Newcastle v Fulham

Newcastle looked jaded against Leeds last time out but should have far more control of the ball here. And with their physical advantage, it could be a rough afternoon for Fulham.

The Cottagers will hope to snatch a point and add to their recent spell of good form. In Cavaleiro and Ademola Lookman, they certainly have the forward ability to cause the Toon problems.

But with Shelvey likely to return, Newcastle should dictate command in midfield. Bruce will want his men to put in a steady performance and a draw is unlikely to disappoint either side.

Our prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Fulham
