    Dean Smith will be without Jack Grealish on Tyneside tonight and will need his defence to step up with goals harder to come by without his talisman.

    His goalkeeper Emi Martinez will also need to be on top form and Smith was quick to heap praise on the ex-Arsenal stopper who has earned rave reviews for his performances between the sticks this season.

    Steve Bruce is under intense pressure – particularly from Newcastle fans.

    Several members of his squad are said to have downed tools and he had a training ground bust-up with Matt Ritchie which is said to have caused a dressing room divide.

    But the Toon boss was trying to remain positive in the build up to tonight's game.

    Hello and welcome to our LIVE match blog for this huge clash between Newcastle United and Aston Villa at St James' Park.
