Travis got MOTM - hopefully we'll start to see him feature in more games

The draw for the forth round will be around 10pm tonight. Dependant on who Rovers will be potentially playing in that draw it may dictate what kind of team Tony Mowbray will select for the Newcastle replay.

I think irrespective of what happens I would anticipate Newcastle playing a similarly weakened side from the start as they're quite likely to lose against Chelsea this weekend then after the replay play Cardiff.

I think Mowbray will go relatively strong regardless of what happens at Millwall, except for injuries/suspensions. As we've also got some obvious rotation from players coming back that I wouldn't say represents a weakened side. For example, Nyambe, Williams, Smallwood, Conway, Palmer, Rothwell, Rodwell have been out of had less minutes.

I'd also say we're only fielding a 'weaker' side in my opinion if you've not got Raya, Mulgrew, Dack, Graham. Arguably Nyambe and Evans although I think we can cope fine if they're not available.

I think you may soon have to be adding Travis into your second list.
