Doncaster Rovers and Newcastle United will trade tackles at the Keepmoat Stadium in a club friendly on Friday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Bradford City in another friendly last Saturday. Abobakar Eisa and Andy Cook scored in each half for the League Two outfit.

Newcastle United suffered a shock defeat to non-league York City on Sunday. Michael Duckworth scored an 87th-minute winner for the side that are five divisions below the Toons.

Both sides will use this fixture to continue their pre-season preparations ahead of the resumption of competitive football. Newcastle United will play two more pre-season fixtures before the start of the new Premier League campaign.
