Ex-Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren will watch tonight's season-opener from the television studio.

Rafa Benitez's men kick-off their Championship campaign at Craven Cottage tonight against Fulham, with the Magpies firm favourites with the bookmakers to return to the Premier League at the first time of action.

McClaren is a pundit for Sky Sports at tonight's televised game after being sacked by Newcastle in March.
