Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is eager to give his youngsters their chance in the Europa League next week.
Shane Ferguson and Sammy Ameobi are both expected to start against Maritimo.
Pardew said: “We have had some good news in that Shane Ferguson and Sammy Ameobi are back in training, and they are two players who I thought would have featured by now in the first team, so I am looking forward to seeing them out there.
“They really have got a great year in front of them. They are two of our better players.”
