Baheng Hits Two As Newcastle Reserves Win 4-2

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.”

Newcastle United Reserves: Ole Soderberg, James Tavernier, Darren Lough, Greg McDermott (Conor Newton, 75m), Ben Tozer, Callum Morris (Paul Dummett, 13m), Samuel Adjei (Phil Airey, 69m) Brad Inman, Wesley Ngo Baheng, Sammy Ameobi, Frank Danquah
Subs n/u: Stephen Folan, Aaron Spear

    I think with the squad the way it is the youngsters know that if they keep playing well they will stand a great chance of 1st team football.

    There’s a good article in the journal this morning all about Newcastle’s newly found team bonding with senior players like Harper leading with Houghton’s blessing.
    Suddenly are lads are prepared to fight for each other with the camaraderie of the Soviets defending Stalingrad against the Nazis.
    This collectivism and the obvious quality of the boy’s in and on the fringes of first team squad bodes well for our future.
    When we get Guiterez back and have signed Kamara on loan l hope, we should be set fair for an exiting and championship winning season.
    My only concern at the moment would be a new owner upsetting this newly found and refreshing determination to build a team worthy of the supporters loyalties.
    Come on show the world this club is no longer a joke, build on this wonderful platform that has been built by those in the trenches.

    Good Comments Waddler…Great to see the positivity at the club..I just try and ignore anything to do with Ashley as it is always negative crap,false promises and lies.

    Enjoying seeing all the lads starting to enjoy football again.

    Good post @3 Waddler and the bond that’s developed between the players and staff is a product of top-drawer man management by Hughton and Calderwood.

    It’s just a shame that Ashley hadn’t employed such an approach in recruiting and managing the club’s management hierachy (I was going to say management team but that would not have been evidenced by past mis-management) thus minimising the implosion taht resulted in relegation.

    Your right when you say ignore Ashley but imagine you’re in Hughton and Calderwood’s situation. Ignoring the awfulness of the shinannigans within the club is impossible and their attitudes and approach just shows how good they are.

    Ashley must be a nightmare to deal with…say one thing do another,offer solutions within a certain timescale that never agreed Lew CC and CH and the players are doing a sterling job.

    What happened to Aaron Spear?

    There was alot of hype when he signed but from what ive seen he hardly plays. Ive heard rumors last year he was home-sick and maybe wanted to leave.
