Newcastle (H) – Verdict

Another late goal which underlines the never say die attitude and the belief of the team despite a performance that seemed to lack the spark and final touch which has been with us for most of the season.

We created a few more than decent chances but the finish was not there but the corner tally of 14-1 tells a story in itself.

The goals will not be fondly remembered by either keeper but Dubravka seemed to be in the right place for 94 minutes whilst Rui was largely unemployed. Let’s hope the running through treacle effect is over as the biggest game of the season – in my eyes anyway – thus far approaches.
