Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has called on his side to be more clinical as they look to react to their shock FA Cup exit when they face Leicester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday.
Newcastle have managed 22 shots on goal in this game and Howe says they must take a chance if they are to avoid leaving another cup.
“We need to be more clinical,” he said.
“If we look at the Leeds game and on Saturday there were too many untaken chances.”
He added: “Psychologically it would be a good thing for us to qualify for a two-man semi-final. We want to experience that, but we have a very different tough opponent in our path.”
Howe made eight changes for the Owls game with Nick Pope, Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson rested.
They are likely to return for Tuesday’s game while record signing Alexander Isak, who played the first 45 minutes at the weekend on his return from a thigh injury, could also get more minutes.
“Hopefully Saturday will do him good and get him involved,” Howe said of Isak.
“We want him fit and available as soon as possible. I felt 45 minutes was his max on Saturday.”
Leicester head into the game on the back of a 1-0 win at Gillingham in the FA Cup.
The Foxes were beaten 3-0 at the King Power Stadium by Newcastle on Boxing Day and boss Brendan Rodgers believes the game offers his side a big chance for revenge.
“It’s a fantastic match,” he said. “We now have experience in cup competitions. It’s a brilliant game for us.
“We only played at Newcastle a few weeks ago, we didn’t show our true colors and within the first 10 minutes we shot ourselves in the foot.
“If you want to succeed in cup competitions, you have to win tough home and away games. We know we have the ability to get a good result.”
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (glute), Boubakary Soumare (hamstring), Dennis Praet (rib), Ricardo Pereira (Achilles) and James Maddison (knee) are all absent.
