The fourth goal on Wednesday night scored by hero Dwight Gayle was the 21st goal scored in the league by Newcastle this season – the most in the Championship and one more than Barnsley have scored.
It was a good goal too from Dwight who got a hat-trick on the night and with more luck he could have had six!
But after he scored everything was a blur and when he was interviewed on nufcTV the interviewer said Dwight looked very cool before he had scored but Gayle said he felt anything but.

But he somehow got his shot off and it went past an unsighted goalkeeper and then bedlam broke loose at St. James’ Park.
It was a memorable ending to a game that will go down in the annals of Newcastle’s great history as one of our greatest ever comebacks.
Here’s some of what Gayle said about how he felt after he scored:
“Yeah I heard it, but, to be honest, at the end, everything was just a blur for me.” “Everyone was going mental.”
“We were all just going crazy together. Unbelievable.” “The noise was right up there with Wembley.”
“I don’t think you can get much louder than that, but I joined this club for moments like that.”
“You dream of scoring hat-tricks and scoring last-minute winners when you are young.”
“To do it in a game like that is mind-boggling, and I will never forget it.”
“I’m just concentrating on scoring goals for the team this season, and see what happens from there.”
“Hopefully, they’ll help us get promoted.”
Talking of promotion, next up is Rotherham away and we must get the win in that game.
There can be no let-down in this game, which could be a bit of a banana skin for Newcastle.
