DeAndre Yedlin is back in training with Newcastle United – but the defender won't feature at Hillsborough.

Yedlin returned to the practice pitch today ahead of tomorrow evening's televised game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Winger Rolando Aarons is also in full training just over four months after suffering a serious knee injury.

But the pair won't be risked in the Championship fixture.

United manager Rafa Benitez said: "We don't want to risk them. They're still not fully fit."

Benitez will again be without midfielder Jack Colback, who missed the midweek win over Burton Albion with a virus.

"Jack still has a problem with a virus," said Benitez, who will also be without Isaac Hayden (ankle), Colback's midfield colleague.

Defender Ciaran Clark (knee) remains sidelined.

Newcastle lead the Championship by two points with six games left to play.
