The match is due to be played at the Millenium Stadium, Cardiff, on March 27th.

However both players are currently injured, and if Toon manager Bobby Robson is not convinced on their fitness he may request they do not play.

Bellamy has missed recent games with a knee injury, whislt Speed pulled his hamstring against Liverpool.
