Traffic chaos likely in city today; Keegan sets out his first priorities as a wave of heady optimism grips the United faithful.

KEVIN Keegan's first game in his second spell as Newcastle manager could bring chaos to the city's streets today.

Northumbria Police have issued a traffic warning to motorists hoping to drive into the city, with the combination of Keegan's first game and a march and rally in the town centre having the potential to wreak havoc on the city's streets.

Newcastle take on Bolton this evening in a 5.15pm kick-off and a huge crowd is expected.

And several streets in the city centre will be closed from 12-3.30pm today as an anti-racism march and rally take place.

Police advise people to allow extra time for their journeys, to use public transport where possible and to remain patient if stuck.

CAPTION(S):

JAM: Newcastle city centre will be busy today.
