Accrington v Newcastle Team News
Newcastle United Manager Chris Hughton will ring the changes for tonight’s Carling Cup game against Accrington Stanley .
Following the sensational six goal demolition of Aston Villa on Sunday , Newcastle come back down to earth tonight with a visit to Accrington’s 5000 capacity Crown ground .
Kazenga LuaLua , James Tavernier , Tamas Kadar , Haris Vukic and Ryan Donaldson have been added to the squad and are likely to play a part in a team which will be vastly different from that which started Sunday’s Premier League game .
However it is unlikely that Sol Campbell will figure in the starting line up and Leon Best is struggling with an ankle injury . Newcastle are expected to start with Shola Ameobi and Peter Lovenkrands up front and Ameobi is a standout 6/1 with bookmaker Victor Chandler to score the first goal .
For Accrington Craig Lindfield is struggling with a knee injury but Rory Boulding is set to return up front after recovering from an achilles injury .
Accrington are in decent form and go into tonight’s game on the back of a 3-0 victory over Macclesfield .
The record attendance at the Crown ground of 4368 could easily be tested tonight and Accrington are likely to rise to the occasion . Accrington manager John Coleman has his team well organised defensively and Accrington are a decent bet at 6/1 with Ladbrokes .
UK Bookmaker Blue Square are trying to attract interest in tonight’s game which is live on Sky Sports 3 and their quote of 50/1 for Accrington to win 2-0 is unmissable value .
