Newcastle United are without top scorer Callum Wilson for this evening's Premier League clash against Bournemouth (kick-off 5:30pm).
Wilson has been called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia next weekend but is now a major doubt.
Wilson hasn't arrived at the Vitality Stadium with the rest of his teammates. Anthony Gordon is set to lead the line in the 31-year-old's absence.
Including Wilson, Eddie Howe is without 11 senior players for his return to the South Coast.
Howe has called up under-21s trio Amadou Diallo, Alex Murphy and Ben Parkinson. The latter two appeared for the Magpies' first-team in pre-season.
Newcastle are hoping to make it 10 domestic games unbeaten ahead of the two-week international break.
