Andros Townsend had a very good home debut for Newcastle United yesterday and for once this season we had a threat down the left wing as Andros ran at the West Brom defense continually and showed he can cross the ball with either foot.
The winger almost scored a great goal in the second half, but the ball hit the bottom of the post with Ben Foster beaten.
Andros got a great reception when he came off late in the game – it was well deserved.
Andros Townsend – very good home debut – hit the post with this effort
And this is the tweet he sent out after the game.
Humbled by the reception I received today on my home debut but more importantly massive 3 points and thoroughly deserved #nufc
