Rafa Benitez was not happy after the game last night and after going through a difficult transfer window in which Lee Charnley and company were unable to get any players in last month, we lost 2 points at home with an own goals in the last minute for a 2-2 draw with lowly placed QPR.
That’s now 13 points we have lost at home this season, mainly against lowly opposition – it’s not good enough.
Rafa Benitez – not happy with result
This is what Rafa said after the game as reported in the Chronicle:
“We had a lot of chances but we didn’t take our chances and we conceded with an own goal, which is the worst thing that can happen,”
“We didn’t take the chances that we had.” “We needed to score the third goal but we didn’t do it.”
“We’re all disappointed that we couldn’t get three points.”
Newcastle would have gone back to the top of the league with a win and put pressure on Brighton, but we didn’t.
Brighton play at Huddersfield tonight and a win could now take them 4 points ahead of us at the top of the table.
