PNE’s penultimate Championship away game of the season was originally set for Saturday, April 22, but has been switched with the Magpies currently top on goal difference and North End chasing a play-off place.

Simon Grayson’s side will be looking to set the record straight against Rafa Benitez’s Magpies having lost 6-0 in the North East in the EFL Cup back in October before going down 2-1 in the league game at Deepdale with Jermaine Beckford controversially denied a late penalty.
