Newcastle United fans have been handed a date for the club's Checkatrade Trophy clash at St James' Park.
United's Under-21 side will take on Macclesfield Town in the second round on December 4 when one of the biggest crowds of the season in this competition could turn out.
With many fans from the lower leagues opting to boycott this tournament, Newcastle's last victory at Grimsby Town attracted a crowd of just 547.
But with a place at Wembley up for grabs later in the season it could see supporters turn out in force to roar the youngsters on against the Silkmen.
Ticket prices have been slashed for the Checkatrade Trophy this season with prices at just £5 for adults and £1 for kids.
Ahead of the game Under-21 coach Ben Dawson has challenged his troops to improve their home form.
He said: "We've had to set up a challenge to be better at home.
"We have been terrific away from home but we need to somehow bottle that up and transfer it to either Whitley Park or St James' Park.
"We will chat with the players and see what they think."
Newcastle are permitted to play two senior players in the game and the game must be decided on the night with a penalty shoot-out lined up if needed.
Victory for the young Magpies would put them in the last 16.
