After 56 minutes of this game, it looked like Newcastle were plunging to our 5th defeat in a row when West Brom went 2-0 up through the impressive Fields after West Brom had taken the lead with a goal just before halftime.
Robson-Kanu had scored a minute into stoppage time as he headed home from close range and unmarked following a cross by former Newcastle target Kieran Gibbs
But three minutes after Fields had put West Brom 2-0 up it was Ciaran Clark who pulled one back with a header.
And with the score 2-1 goalkeeper Foster produced a terrific save to deny Matt Ritchie an equalizer when he met a Rolando Aarons cross after 70 minutes.
It wouldn’t have counted with the offside flag being raised.
But Newcastle had finally woken up and with seven minutes it was an own goal by Jonny Evans who deflected a Matt Ritchie free-kick into his own net that gave us a 2-2 draw and broke the losing streak.
Newcastle could even have snatched a winner but it was not to be and we’ll take the point.
For West Brom caretaker manager Gary Megson he must have thought his side were heading for their first win since last August but it was not to be as this Newcastle side never give up.
This was a valuable draw with West Brom 3 points behind us in the league so we kept that difference and it will be important we don’t lose to teams beneath us in the league table.
Newcastle left it late but in the end as both Alan Shearer and Mick Quinn said – it was a very good away point.
We’ll take it.
Rafa will be happy with scoring two goals and unhappy at conceding two goals – that’s 9 goals conceded in the last 3 games and we are at Chelsea on Saturday.
