Newcastle will be looking to continue their recent resurgence in the Premier League when they make the long journey south to face Brentford in the capital on Saturday, February 26.
 
Eddie Howe's side claimed a vital point on Saturday, February 19, when they held West Ham to a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium to go level on 22 points with 16th-placed Everton.

The Magpies are now unbeaten in their last six league encounters, although Howe was disappointed not to come away with more from east London given their dominant display. However, he admits that is indicative of how much progress has been made on Tyneside in recent weeks.
 
"It shows we are in a good place, it shows that confidence levels have definitely grown," Howe told NUFC TV.
 
"But there's still a long way to go and we need more points and there's no let-up in terms of schedule. The games are tough at this level so we know we still have to be very grounded."
 
The Bees' slide down the table is showing no signs of letting up after they suffered a 2-1 defeat to neighbours Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on the same day.
 
The top-flight newcomers have recorded just one victory in their last 10 outings and go into their clash with the 17th-placed Toon on the back of a seven-game winless streak.

Thomas Frank is not too concerned about his team's dip in form though, insisting it is a common occurrence for clubs in the bottom-half of the table.
 
"I think it is about us, what we can do," the Dane said in his post-match interview on Saturday.
 
"Focus on the next training, the next game, that is the most important thing. We have done that the whole season, it is only about us.
 
"Every team in the Premier League, if you are in the bottom 10, have spells like this."
