Change Of Venue

Newcastle United's UEFA Cup second qualifying round first-leg match against Latvian side FK Ventspils a week on Thursday has been switched to the Skonto Stadium, Riga.

The venue change is because Ventspils' ground has a capacity of only 3,000 and United are seen as a big attraction.

The match will kick off at 8.50pm local time (6.50pm GMT) with the return a fortnight later at St James' Park.

Also ...

Saturday's kick-off with Villarreal, has been put back 15 minutes and will now have a 5.15pm start.

The Spanish giants are a big test for United, and Glenn Roaeder wants to see a better performance than the first hour against PSV Eindhoven last week, when the Dutch stormed into a 3-0 lead.

The game could be shown live on TV, as Newcastle are currently holding talks with Channel Five.
