Newcastle got a hard-fought win this afternoon at Deepdale and we are getting to be a team that can find a way to win even in difficult games – that’s the sign of a good side.
And it was a second brace for the enormously popular 22 year-old Aleksandar Mitrovic in just four days and now he has 5 goals on the season.
A terrific brace of games for Mitro – he’s back!
