Eating my words here from previous posts, but that’s fine 😃

Overall, not the best of games as entertainment goes with both teams not showing dominance. The game ended at half time 0-0 with one attempt in the first half shaking the crossbar from Newcastle.

Second half started much like the first bit the teams were divided at the 71st minute with a goal from north Shields born and bred Matthew Longstaff. Longstaff shot a raking goal outside of the box into the lower left side of goal from a pass back which defeated the Manchester defender and keeper.

Newcastle are now out of the bottom 3 by a singular point and being replaced by Everton of all teams who sit on 7 points.

Well done Newcastle but we’re no way safe from dropping back in to the bottom three with more difficult games ahead.
