Newcastle Beat Gateshead Easily By 3-1


A Newcastle eleven beat Gateshead 3-1 tonight at the International Stadium.

And it was two goals from the impressive Sammy Ameobi that allowed Newcastle to overcome a 1-0 deficit and win the game 3-1.

Kyle Nix put Gateshead ahead from a penalty early in the game, but a goal in each half by Sammy Ameobi was enough to give the visitors the victory.

Alan Pardew had judged this game to be important enough to pick the side, and of course be at the game, and first teamers Steve Harper, Mike Williamson, Alan Smith and Ryan Taylor all started the game.

Newcastle were slow off the mark, as they were at Leeds last Sunday, and Gateshead should have gone ahead after only 4 minutes but Kyle Nix missed a good opportunity, when he hit the ball over the bar when it looked far easier to score.

And then Yemi Odubade hit the bar just two minutes later from a direct free kick from 20 yards out, but then Gateshead went ahead after 9 minutes,

Odubade was taken down in the penalty area by Richardson and Tavernier, and Nix easily beat goalkeeper Steve Harper from the penalty spot.

Newcastle were level within a minute and it was Michael Richardson down the right wing, who got in a decent cross, and Sammy Ameobi headed home at the far post.

Newcastle went further ahead after 39 minutes, as Sammy Ameobi his the ball hard across the goal and centre-back James Curtis’ put the ball past his own goalkeeper.

Gateshead goalkeeper Farman then saved well from a Ryan Taylor free kick and then then he saved well again from the man Ameobi again.

Just before half time Nathan Fisher’s fine effort from 20 yards beat Harper, but came back off the upright, and it was 2-1 at the half to the visitors.

Ryan Taylor after the break sent a free kick just wide of the upright, and then Haris Vuckic had a good effort again saved by Farman.

Then after 60 minutes Newcastle went 3-1 up from a Ryan Taylor corner, that was headed goal-wards by big Nile Ranger, and young Ameobi was onto the rebound in a flash, and had his second goal of the evening.

Newcastle then got well on top and could have won by more than the two goals as Vuckic again went close but the ball rebounded off the post.

It was a good victory by Newcastle, and certainly Alan Pardew, after the challenges of the last couple of days, seemed pleased enough.

Gateshead (4-3-3): Paul Farman; Eddie Odhiambo (Craig Baxter 77), James Curtis, Ben Clark (c), Chris Carruthers; Kyle Nix (Micky Cummins 46), Kris Gate, Phil Turnbull: Yemi Odubade, Nathan Fisher (Josh Gillies 73), Chris Moore

    said the same thing earlier mate, lets give Abeid, Vukic and Sammy a game against Fiorentina, it will give everyone a chance to gauge them if we see them against a top team

    okay media black out – can only mean one thing…..a transfer is imminent…

    if they are not prepared to release a statement on bartongate that means they are busy elsewhere…its either a transfer…or the casino

    Wow Ameobi has been tearing up pre season so far. And from what i’ve heard so have Vuckic and Abeid. I reckon all could be in alan pardews plans half way through the season. These 3 players could save us a lot of money trying to buy a replacement for Joey Barton. They all look as though they are ready to make that step up.

    OK for Barton and Enrique, but if others players are disgusted by the way the club is ruled, it would be very hard to have a decent season…

    The reaction of the board against Barton is strong, but the top priority is now to stop the contagion…

    Well,see that! Now, i speak like Bashar al Asad!

    davy barton can still fork ashley off by seeing out his contract. All he has to do is refuse offers.
