The game will take place at St. James’ Park on Tuesday September 15th, kick-off 7.30pm.
Should the scores be level at the end of 90 minutes then the match will go straight to penalties.

Newcastle, who finished 13th in the Premier League last season, are entering at this stage of the competition.
The winners of the tie in the North East will be away to either Morecambe or Oldham Athletic in the third round.
