There were some excellent performances from this Newcastle side all over the park in second half and in a game we just had to win we did – and it was a great Andros Townsend thunderbolt from a free kick with his left foot after 59 minutes.
After 70 minutes Karl Darlow made a sensational save from a Yohan Cabaye penalty – as he guessed right and moves smartly to his left to pull off a great save.

Newcastle fans took to Twitter to express their at the great win – two more wins against Aston Villa and Tottenham could see us safe this season.
Very impressed with Townsend and Anita. Darlow great. Sissoko applied himself well. Thought Tiote was good, after a shaky start. #nufc

Karl Darlow’s penalty save could be worth a 100 million ? #NUFC
