Newcastle were 1-0 up after 16 minutes though Manyu Riviere, but Huddersfield came from behind and were 2-1 up after 65 minutes, with good goals from Majewski and John Snead, and when it looked like Newcastle were going to suffer a shock defeat, that man Remy Cabella came through to score a great goal for the Magpies after 88 minutes, and it ended all square at 2-2.

Newcastle took the lead after 16 minutes, and it was that man Riviere again who scored his third goal in pre-season, and it was a well taken opportunity by the Frenchman.

Good work between Cabella and Gouffran saw Yoan put the ball into Riviere at the far post and he put the ball into the back of the net.

Newcastle looked comfortable after the first goal but Newcastle didn’t create many chances and it was midfielder Majewski, who scored a fine goal for Huddersfield to level the scored after 36 minutes.

But it was poor defending by Newcastle and a right wing cross should have been cleared and Dixon gave the ball to Majewski, who put the ball brilliantly into the top right hand corner giving Krul no chance.

And then Remy Cabella had a decent drive at goal and that wasn’t far off the target, and at half time the scored were level at 1-1.

At the start of the second half Huddersfield made 11 changes – talk about giving all your players a run-out.

Pardew made three changes and on came Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Gabby Obertan and Rolando Aarons for Daryl Janmaat, Facundo Ferreyra and Yoan Gouffran shortly into the second half.

After 64 minutes Dummett was introduce for Haidara, Abeid was brought on for Colback and Steven Taylor replaced Mike Williamson in central defense.

Then Huddersfield took the lead one minute later when Jon Snead had the ball in the back of the net, and seven minutes later Ayoze Perez came on for Manu Riviere.

Substitute Paul Dummett then tried a speculative shot from long range and it was quite close – a decent effort from the local lad.

Then with just two minutes to go Ayoze Perez was brought down outside the box and the Spanish winger quickly played the ball through to Remy Cabella.

Cabella was being challenged by a defender but the Frenchman scored another great goal for Newcastle, as the 24 year-old showed his class and brilliantly lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net to make it 2-2.

This lad is going to be great for Newcastle, although his goal seemed to come off a Huddersfield defender.

Here are all four goals – video.
