1' Newcastle get the game underway
- Kiev sprang a major surprise by naming dangerman Florin Cernat, who Sir Bobby Robson had man-marked at the Olympic Stadium, on the bench in one of four changes to the side which won that game 2-0. Yuriy Dmytrulin, Valentin Belkevich, Badr El Kaddouri and Goran Gavrancic all win recalls.
- Kieron Dyer, who has missed the last two games with a back injury, is named only among the substitutes - but Nolberto Solano shakes off an ankle knock. Titus Bramble, who impressed against Juventus in the absence of the suspended Nikos Dabizas, retained his place.
- null
- Another must-win night for the Magpies as they bid to salvage their hopes of reaching Phase Two. Join us at 19.45 GMT.
