Rafael Benitez can call on Newcastle midfielder Matt Ritchie for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Wolves.

Ritchie sat out Wednesday night’s draw at Everton through suspension and is expected to go straight back into the starting XI.

However, defender Fabian Schar picked up his fifth booking in just six league games at Goodison Park and so is banned.

Midfielder Kenedy (toe) has returned to training and full-back Paul Dummett (hamstring) is also in contention although he remains short of match fitness. Defender Florian Lejeune (knee) continues to work his way back.
