Newcastle United returned from the international picking up from where they left off with an emphatic 3-1 victory against Brentford at St James Park.
Two goals from Championship top scorer Dwight Gayle and Ciaran Clark sealed a comfortable victory for the Magpies who jumped up to second place – one point behind Norwich City.

They will be looking to take advantage of a Barnsley side that have slumped in form lately – losing four out of their last five Championship games.
