The Magpies are still on the hunt for their first win of the campaign and will be hoping they can kickstart the season under new boss Eddie Howe.
Newcastle are without the ex-Bournemouth manager however, with it being confirmed yesterday that Howe had tested positive for Covid-19 and would be absent from his first game in charge.
As a result, his assistants Jason Tindall and Graeme Jones will lead the team against Brentford.
