Newcastle fans took to Twitter after our second massive win in just five days and we beat the in-from Huddersfield Town side 3-1 this afternoon to go 5 points clear of Brighton at the top of the table and 11 points clear of Huddersfield in 3rd place although they have one game in hand on us.
It was another very good performance from our players with the defense looking very solid although the clean sheet was spoiled by a penalty after 73 minutes.
Matt Ritchie (penalty – yes – we actually got one today), Daryl Murphy and …… yes – Dwight Gayle – (he’s back) scored our goals today and credit to Daryl for his 4th goal of the season and he seems to be able scored when he starts games.
Credit to all our players today – they were great and made us very proud.
Newcastle players celebrate at the impressive John Smith’s Stadium
Great management by Rafa to play Murphy instead of Mitro who would never have scored that goal #nufc
