Cautious Magpies can ease relegation fears at Huddersfield
Injury to Aaron Mooy could prove costly for Terriers
The Magpies' cautious style of play is well suited to road trips and their only away defeats have been inflicted by Manchester City (2-1) and Manchester United (3-2).
They have competed well in their other away games, winning one and drawing four, and they have a great chance to topple Huddersfield, who are weaker without injured midfielder Aaron Mooy.
Newcastle draw no bet
1pt 11-10 general
Aaron Mooy (knee) is out until February and Jonathan Hogg (muscle strain) and Tommy Smith (hamstring) are doubts but Phil Billing returns from a ban.
Jonjo Shelvey (thigh) and Federico Fernandez (calf) have missed training this week and are major doubts but Florian Lejeune (knee) is back in contention.
Huddersfield have won just one of their last ten home league matches.
