Newcastle will go in search of a fourth successive win when they take on Derby in Saturdays evening kick off.
After losing their opening two games to Fulham and Huddersfield, the Magpies have bounced back to beat Reading, Bristol and Brighton as Rafa Benitez’s side look to shift up a gear and make a realistic bid for automatic promotion.

Key to their form has been Dwight Gayle and Ayoze Perez with the pair grabbing two goals apiece in the last three games.
The wins have pushed Newcastle up to fourth in the table, four points off top spot and the Toon certainly now look to be that heavily backed ante post favourite we all expected after a sluggish start to their season in England’s second tier.
Manager Rafa Benitez will have Aleksandar Mitrovic and Gayle available following concussion while new signing DeAndre Yedlin will hope for a first start after making his debut as a late substitute against Brighton.
Derby meanwhile sit 18th in the table with 1 win and 2 draws from their opening five games, in what has been a disappointing start to their campaign. The Rams are now under the management of former Magpie’s caretaker boss Nigel Pearson, adding some additional spice to the clash.
Pearson will hope that new signings Chris Weale, James Wilson, Matej Vydra and Ikechi Anya can all make an instant impact although the loss of Jeff Hendrick and Chris Martin, transferred to Burnley and Fulham respectively will be a blow.
Midfielder Will Hughes is a doubt after being struck in the face with a ball on duty with the England U21 team. Midfielder Bradley Johnson is fit after an ankle injury however striker Abdoul Camara is out after suffering a hamstring injury during the 1-0 defeat at Burton last time out.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides since 2010. On that occasion Derby won 3-0, Rob Hulse and Kris Commons among the goal-scorers.
Of the previous four meetings, the Rams have won two and drawn two with Newcastle’s last win in this fixture coming in 2002 when they won 3-2 at the home of Derby in a Premier League fixture.
The home win is available at 19/10, but punters should stay clear of that price.
Newcastle should have too much quality for a Derby side that is in a period of transition, both team wise and managerial, and the 7/4 on the away win looks a pretty tasty price.
This one kicks off at 17:30 today.
