Boost for Magpies ahead of Benfica game

Newcastle United have been given a boost ahead of tomorrow's Europa League clash against Benfica.

Hatem Ben Arfa and Massadio Haidara both trained with the first team today and could be fit for the club's quarter-final second leg at St James' Park.

However, Alan Pardew confirmed that Steven Taylor is a doubt after picking up a knock in training.

The Magpies trail the Portuguese side 3-1 after last week's first leg in Lisbon.
