HARIS Vuckic and Gael Bigirimana are set to face Team Northumbria tonight.

The Newcastle United pair are in line to start for the Under-21s in tonight’s Northumberland Senior Cup tie at Whitley Park (7.30pm kick-off).

Forward Vuckic and midfielder Bigirimana are candidates to go out on loan before the Football League’s emergency loan window closes on November 27.

Callum Roberts, Daniel Barlaser and Liam Gibson are also expected to be handed starts against the Northern League side by reserve-team manager Peter Beardsley.

Admission to the quarter-final tie will be £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.
