Premier League Newcastle United head to Mazuma Stadium looking to avoid a giantkilling at the hands of League Two Morecambe on Wednesday. Will it be plain sailing for the Magpies in the Carabao Cup third round?

Morecambe Form

Morecambe finished third from bottom in League Two last season after the season was cut short. The Shrimps have played five times this season, winning through two Carabao Cup ties against Grimsby (on penalties) and Oldham (1-0) as well as losing to 2-1 to Rochdale in the EFL Trophy.

In League Two, Derek Adams' side started with a 2-1 win at Cheltenham but were thumped 5-0 at home by Cambridge United on Saturday. He will be expecting a reaction when the Magpies visit.

Morecambe Team News

Morecambe made seven changes in the last round win over Oldham, but expect a strong side to be named against Newcastle. Captain Sam Lavelle, Ryan Cooney and John O'Sullivan all came off the bench at the weekend and could start.

Newcastle United Form

Newcastle were excellent winners of their opening game of the season as goals from new signings Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick earned a 2-0 win over West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

But the Magpies have put in two below-par performances at home since. They struggled past Blackburn 1-0 in the Carabao Cup second round thanks to Ryan Fraser's goal, and lost 3-0 to Brighton on Sunday after conceding twice in the opening seven minutes.

Newcastle United Team News

Martin Dubravka, Paul Dummett, Fabian Schar and Dwight Gayle all remain out, and they are joined on the sidelines by Allan Saint-Maximin, who is rested after limping out of Sunday's defeat.

Jamal Lewis will also sit out the trip to Morecambe after being kicked in the head against Brighton. Matty Longstaff is a possible to return from a thigh injury. 

Steve Bruce has vowed to name a strong side with Fraser and Miguel Almiron likely starters having featured in the last round, and Matt Ritchie set to replace Lewis.
