Newcastle United travel to Ipswich hoping to get themselves back on track in the Championship promotion race.

United have taken just a single point from their last two games, although they deserved much more from their home game against Leeds.

They still need seven points to guarantee promotion after Huddersfield won with the final kick of their game against Preston. United could have booked their place in the Premier League on Monday if they'd have held out - but as it stands it will not be for another five days at the very earliest.

Rafa Benitez will be considered changes for the match, which the hosts have dubbed Bobby Robson Day in a nod to the legendary ex-United boss.

The action gets under way at 3pm. it is one of a full programme of Championship games. Rivals Huddersfield play at 5pm against Derby, while Brighton are at home to Wigan.
