Newcastle United earned a decent draw at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon, with two goals from Papiss Cisse, as the lads twice came from behind and clung on for a vital point – so we now have 4 points fr0m our first seven games of the season and we are now 3rd bottom of the league.
Papiss Cisse – scores again
And it was that man Papiss Cisse who converted probably the only two chances we had in the whole game, and this man could yet be the one who can save us this season.
Swansea went ahead after 17 minutes though Wilfried Bony, and it was poor defensive work by Newcastle, but then Gabby Obertan provided the cross that saw Cisse sweep the ball into the goal just before half time after 43 minutes.
Swansea had been the better side and went ahead again after 49 minutes, and it former Newcastle winger Wayne Routledge who was put through by Sigurdsson, and he scored easily.
But then with 15 minutes to go substitute Sammy Ameobi crossed, and it was that man Cisse again in the right place at the right time to score his second goal of the afternoon for the Magpies.
Four league goals this season and that’s twice as many as he scored last season in 24 league appearance.
We’ll have a report of the game out shortly.
