Newcastle United are set for League Cup action on Wednesday evening.

The Magpies face a trip to lower-league outfit Morecambe in the competition’s 3rd round.

Newcastle head into the tie with a pretty poor recent record in the League Cup. In fact, the North East outfit haven’t made it past the 5th round since all the way back in the 1975/76 season.

They should, however, have little issue seeing off Morecambe on Wednesday.

Bruce on Saint-Maximin

Ahead of tomorrow’s matchup, meanwhile, Steve Bruce held his latest press conference on Tuesday.

During the presser, the Newcastle boss provided a fitness update on Allan Saint-Maximin.

The Frenchman has been a key figure at Newcastle for some time now, but was forced off during the first-half of the club’s 3-0 loss to Brighton on Sunday.

And, though Saint-Maximin is expected to miss out on Wednesday, Bruce confirmed that there is a chance the winger could return to fitness in time for Newcastle’s trip to Tottenham this weekend:

“Saint-Maximin has had a scan on his ankle and we don’t think it’s that bad. He won’t make tomorrow night but has a chance for Sunday.

“We were worried about Jamal’s eye and it’s completely closed but thankfully there’s no lasting damage to it.”
