A shambles of a performance against Oxford at ST James’s park on Saturday has resulted in a replay next Tuesday.
The match should have ended with a Newcastle win against the league one visitors but the game ended goal-less with a 0-0 outcome.
Newcastle did look the better side with the majority of possession which showed by the two goal chances that had both ruled as offside. The scruffy tactics from Oxford was also observed with shocking tackles and the pulling of almirons shirt which should have been a sending off due to him clearly been in a goal scoring opportunity.
Let’s hope the away trip to Oxford is in Newcastle’s favour of a win but in all honesty I can see us exiting the tournament in the very near future with the likes of Man city and teams playing for fun putting them past the opposition.
