Newcastle fans went on Twitter after the game today and they are very happy campers after we managed to get a win at the game all the pundits talked about sarcastically after we were relegated – at Burton Albion and the Pirelli Stadium which holds just under 7,000 fans.
Both sides came out of this game with credit – Newcastle for battling for the win and Burton Albion who showed what we already knew – they are a good side with good team spirit.
It’s tough wins like these that can get us promoted in May.
Howay The Lads!!

“Enjoy the Championship”, “Enjoy Burton Albion away” they all said in May. We are loving it. #NUFC

From the opposition some nice words:
Newcastle’s away support really was something else today. Disappointing result, but all the best to them. Easily the best this season. #NUFC
