Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce hopes to catch out Wolves this weekend.
Wolves are facing a quick turnaround for their trip to St James’ Park after securing a 2-1 Europa League victory in Slovakia against Slovan Bratislava on Thursday night.
“It is mightily difficult to get that mindset of playing Thursday because always you play on a Sunday,” Bruce said.
“The big teams who are used to it are used to playing repeatedly in Europe, they’ve become accustomed to it, but it can be difficult.
“I hope we can benefit from it. Let’s hope they’re really tired, and bruised and battered and the plane’s been delayed five hours.”
