Follow all the build-up, live score, action and reaction as we bring you full coverage of Norwich City’s FA Youth Cup third-round clash against Newcastle United, in our Matchday Live blog from Carrow Road.
City's youngsters will be hoping to better last year's cup campaign that saw them knocked out by Preston North End in the fourth round. A home tie against Manchester United could await the winners providing the Red Devils beat Lincoln City on Friday.
The Canaries have found their feet after a disappointing start to the campaign, as they failed to win any of their first ten games in the league. Victory against Reading last time out has lifted the mood as they target further success in this competition.
The 2019-20 U18s squad will be aiming to replicate the success of Neil Adams' squad from 2012-13, who took the silverware home after an aggregate win over Chelsea in the final.
United sit 11th in the northern division but have lost their last four league games. The sides met in the fifth round of the 2017-18 competition, with City edging a close match 4-3 after extra-time.
