Newcastle won their 4th game on the trot in the Championship tonight with a solid 2-0 win at Derby County.
That’s now five wins in a row and it saw Yoan Gouffran score his first goal for the club in a long time and the Frenchman – reborn under Rafa Benitez – did it with a sublime drive from a Jonjo Shelvey corner.
The corner looked like it was over-hit, but we suspect it was a set-piece the lads had been practicing in training and Jonjo by the way looked very good in central midfield tonight.
A second goal by new boy DeAndre Yedlin in stoppage time and it was a very good 2-0 win tonight – we’ll take it.
