How Rafael Benitez has started preparing Newcastle for promotion battle

Just four months after being in charge of Real Madrid, Benitez is set to face Burton Albion and Rotherham in the English second tier as the Spaniard looks to lead Newcastle back into the top flight at the first attempt.

Next season’s Championship fixtures are released on June 22.

Toon kick-off their promotion bid on August 6, giving Benitez a six-week pre-season to fine-tune his preparations for the campaign, which is expected to include a training camp in Spain.
