Head coach Steve McClaren was delighted with the clean sheet at Manchester United today. There were a number of players who had excellent games, but none better than captain Fabricio Coloccini who had an absolutely great game at the back for us.
Mitrovic hit the bar with a tremendous header in the first half, and then in stoppage time we had a fantastic breakaway after Vurnon Anita had cleared off the line from Chris Smalling.
And as Steve says – we should have scored then – and if we had we would have won it.

But the Red Devils also should have scored a few times today.

Steve McClaren said he was delighted with Newcastle’s excellent defensive performance today – and it’s two steps forward this week for Newcastle United – after taking one or two steps back in south Wales.
