Newcastle United boss Joe Kinnear says Joey Barton isn't the only senior player to make a big derby return against Sunderland.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Spiderman (Jonas Gutierrez) is flying at the moment.

"He's trained very well with us, and he wants to be involved.

"There's every chance that he could play a part in the match at some stage.

"I've got him and Joey to consider, so the bench is looking very good.

"We've got a lot of confidence going into the derby.

"I've been involved in London derbies on numerous occasions, but the tell me they're nothing like this one."
