Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is set to hand goalkeeper Rob Elliot his chance tonight against Maritimo.
The Greenwich-born shot-stopper has not featured at first-team level since last season’s League Cup defeat against Nottingham Forest.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: “It’s a tough decision with the game on Sunday, and playing Monday. Whether Harps can play three games in a week, I don’t know. Rob perhaps deserves to have a look. I’ll probably make a late call as to whether Rob plays in goal for this one.”
