Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic could start against Cheltenham Town after serving a four-match ban.

The Serbia international will feature for the first time this season, manager Rafael Benitez has confirmed.

Former Preston forward Jeffrey Monakana has travelled with the Cheltenham squad and could be involved if he receives international clearance in time to complete his deal with the club.

Dan Holman (foot), Amari Morgan-Smith and Jack Munns (knee) remain sidelined.
