The Newcastle trialist was left-sided defender Geneiro Maragh, also involved in the last U23 game (versus Aston Villa at home in PL2).

The addition of Santiago Munoz and Mo Sangare to the appearance list means that 38 different players have appeared for United's second string in league and cup competitions so far this season.



Newcastle's Premier League Cup Group campaign ended in defeat on Monday evening, although their progress to the last 16 was already assured.

Two first half goals at the John Smiths Stadium were enough for the Terriers to secure top spot in Group G and a home meeting with Stoke City in the knockout stages.

The Magpies meanwhile must settle for a trip to Fulham after finishing as runners-up. The PL2 meeting of the sides in London earlier this season ended 3-1 to the Cottagers; the return on Tyneside next week.

Town went ahead in the 26th minute when Jaheim Headley took a crossfield pass from Loick Ayina out on the left flank. Heading into the box and jinking inside an opponent he then shot powerfully past goalkeeper Will Brow n.

Huddersfield doubled that lead on 39 minutes, Ben Midgley's in-swinging free kick from the right hand side of the box met by an unmarked Danny Grant, who headed home at the back post.

Visiting coach Elliott Dickman made a trio of replacements during the second half, sending on fit-again duo Ryan Barrett and Mo Sangare - the latter sidelined through injury since 2020.

And between their introductions, there was a belated debut for Mexican U23 international forward Santiago Munoz, who signed for United last August.

PLC Group Winners: Derby County, Fulham, Huddersfield Town, Boro, West Bromwich Albion.

PLC Runners-up: Arsenal, Charlton Athletic, Newcastle, QPR, Stoke City.

West Ham and Wolves have qualified, but it's yet tbc which side will win their group. Confirmation of the last four qualifiers is also still awaited.
