It’s not only the Newcastle first team that’s on a winning streak at the club.
Wesley Ngo Baheng – another 2 goals last night
And Wesley Ngo Baheng bagged two more goals as Newcastle United Reserves twice came from behind to claim a deserved 4-2 victory at Huddersfield Town, with a couple of goals in the last few minutes to win the game.
Robbie Simpson scored both goals for Huddersfield, in front of first-team boss and Newcastle-born Lee Clark.
His first came after just 19 minutes as he hit the ball past Ole Soderberg after being put through by James Spencer.
Lee Clark has Terry McDermott at the Galpharm Stadium, and it was Terry’s son Greg who scored for Newcastle to level the scores, as he hit the ball through a crowd of players on 32 minutes into the net.
Then just after half time Simpson, hit a terrific shot from 25 yards out, that went in off the post to put Huddersfield ahead again.
Baheng then scored his first to make it 2-2 soon after, by coolly slotting home after being put clear by young Australian Brad Inman.
But near the end Newcastle went for the kill and continuously attacked the Terriers. With jsut 4 minutes to go goalkeeper Glennon turned Conor Newton’s goal-bound shot curler around the upright.
But then almost immediately Dutchman Frank Danquah cut in beautifully from the right, and hit home when a 20-yard drive that was deflected beyond Glennon.
Then Baheng was put through by Jim Goodwin’s wayward pass, and the Frenchman hit the ball under Glennon from close range to make it 4-2.
Afterwards, a delighted Geordie coach Thompson said:
“The lads showed terrific character to twice come from behind and I thought the win was thoroughly deserved.”
