Nobby Solano Milestone
Goalkeeper Shay Given is the only player to have been on the field for every minute of every one of Newcastle's Premiership matches this season.
And if on the pitch for the opening whistle, Kieron Dyer will be making his 150th Premiership start for the Magpies. That works out at only 21 games a season since his transfer, just over half the games.
Also, if he plays, Nol Solano will be making his 200th Premiership appearance for Newcastle.
