Newcastle v Southampton channel. TV info and kick-off time of Carabao Cup semi-final

Newcastle can move within one step of their first major domestic trophy for 68 years when they host Southampton in the second leg of their Carabao Cup final on Tuesday evening.

Not since the 1955 FA Cup have the Magpies tasted trophy success at the top level in England but a final at Wembley awaits if they can turn a 1-0 first-leg lead into aggregate victory over the Saints.

A dramatic first leg at St Mary’s a week ago has given Eddie Howe’s side a 1-0 lead to protect on home turf, after Joelinton had one goal disallowed and missed a sitter but eventually legally netted from Alexander Isak’s low cross before Southampton’s Duje Caleta-Car was sent off late on.

Nick Pope also produced a couple of world-class saves in the second half to maintain the clean sheet and with the Magpies soaring in the Premier League, Howe has brought the feelgood factor back to St James’ Park. Here’s everything you need to know about the second leg:
