Dwight Gayle scored two goals for Newcastle in our 2-2 draw last Saturday, and it looked like Dwight is back to his goalscoring best.
It’s the first time this season that any player has scored two in the league, although Ayoze Perez did score a brace in the FA Cup 3rd round against Luton Town in January.
Both goals were opportunist goals, and Dwight really seems to been enjoying his football since the beginning of the year.
The last time he scored was in early December, so it was good for him and good for Newcastle he’s now playing well.
Dwight Gayle – in action at Dean Court
But as we mentioned this morning, Rafa took him off after 78 minutes as a precaution because his hamstrings were tight.
Let’s hope he can keep playing for us since we are again short of strikers, with Mitro gone and Slimani injured.
Dwight’s now top of the goalscoring charts at Newcastle with 5 goals.
The most he has ever scored in the Premier League is 7 goals with Crystal Palace four years ago in the 2013-2104 season.
