Newcastle won their 6th league game in a row since we only drew at Villa Park when the home side equalized in the last minute – and that is now 7 wins in a row in all competitions.
And it was another brace from Aleksandar Mitrovic – his second in four days – that got the Magpies all 3 points with Preston’s consolation goal coming in the 90th minute.
We remain top of the Championship with 34 points from our 15 games – 4 points better off than back in 2009 after 15 games played.
