The return of Callum Wilson and Federico Fernandez is a welcomed boost for the Magpies, however it is tinged with a little sadness with Jamaal Lascelles at risk of missing the remainder of the season.

Nevertheless, the 60-year-old head coach has some big decisions to field as he seeks a valuable three points in the club’s battle against relegation.

When asked if Saint-Maximin or top scorer Wilson will start at Turf Moor, Bruce said in his pre-match press conference on Friday: "That’s the big decision I have to make, of course.

"They’re muscle injuries, which always you’ve got to box clever with. I hope I make the right choice.”

So, who will Bruce name in his starting XI for the ‘six-pointer’ against Sean Dyche’s side?
