West Ham United skipper Kevin Nolan says he and Andy Carroll are looking forward to returning to Newcastle United.

The former Toon stars are returning to Tyneside this weekend.

Nolan told the Evening Chronicle: "It is going to be interesting for Andy going back because he is a Newcastle lad and he grew up there. Up to 50,000 people are going to boo us on Sunday but if we went out in the evening they would probably be around wanting pictures! It is going to be good.

"I am just looking forward to it, to be honest.

"We had fantastic times there.

"It was a top-notch place to play football so I am looking forward to going back and getting a bit of stick, but it is all good banter!"
