Newcastle Eagles took home the British Basketball Trophy last night - and their coach Fab Flourney says it's "two down, two to go".
The Magpies travel to the Hawthorns to face West Brom on Sunday
The Black Cats are back in Premier League action as they host Queen Park Rangers at the Stadium of Light tomorrow.
Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old signed for the Magpies in 2008 and has made 58 appearances for the club, but has fallen out of favour in recent months.
The player has also made more headlines off the field recently, after making several court appearances.
It's the second time the 6ft 2in has been loaned out this season after the player had a stint with Championship side Barnsley at the end of last year.
This latest move is now a further indication that Ranger's days at St James' Park are numbered.
The forward is now in contention for Wednesday's League One trip to Leyton Orient tomorrow.
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray says his team need to improve their home form ahead of tomorrow's match against Bristol City.
Boro have won just seven of their 19 games at the Riverside this season.
Sunderland fans are to be given an extra few days to secure their seat for the 2012-2013 season.
The Stadium of Light ticket office has seen huge demand from supporters wanting to renew their existing seats and also buy season cards for the first time.
The club confirmed that the deadline for supporters to renew or purchase a new season card at special prices has been now been extended until 5pm, Monday 26 March.
– Margaret Byrne, SAFC chief executive
We want as many people as possible to be able to take advantage of the price freeze and commit to the club for next season so by extending the offer for a few days we can ensure that everyone who wants to buy a seat and take advantage of the early bird price has the opportunity to do so…it is wonderful to see our Sunderland family increasing in such numbers and we can only grow stronger through such fantastic support.
Newcastle United and Sunderland Football Club have been charged by the FA for failing to control their players at their recent Premier League clash.
– FA statement
Newcastle United and Sunderland have been fined £40,000 and £20,000 respectively after both clubs admitted a charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour. The incident, which also saw both teams being warned as to their future conduct, occurred in the 19th minute of their game on 4 March 2012 and followed a challenge by Sunderland’s James McClean on Newcastle’s Danny Simpson.
Newcastle United were fined double Sunderland because, the FA said, it was the club's second misconduct charge of a similar nature in the same season.
Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray is hoping his side can bounce back from last weekend's home defeat away at Birmingham tomorrow.
Boro have the second-best away record in the championship this season behind West Ham - taking 30 points from 16 games.
However it's their home form that is causing concern among some fans. Middlesbrough have drawn eight of their 19 matches at the Riverside - the latest ended in a 2-0 loss to Leeds United last Sunday.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow's trip to St Andrews, Mowbray said: "Give credit to Leeds. They played a very high energy game and got the result.
"But we've been pretty good on our travels this year, so we'll be looking for a few more wins on the road over the next coming months."
He added: "We have to be ready for Birmingham this weekend, and then we've got to travel to West Ham on Tuesday night. They're tough games of course. Both of those sides are at the top end of the table and have a lot to play for."
Middlesbrough will be without Barry Robson - who is suspended - and Faris Haroun remains a doubt. Kevin Thomson will be assessed before kick-off after being knocked unconscious against Leeds.
