Newcastle enjoyed a very comfortable evening tonight as they coasted by Rochdale 4-1 at St James Park to secure a spot in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup against Oxford United.
It really couldn’t have gone much better than it did. About the only item not checked off the list was an Andy Carroll goal though he hit the post in the 89th minute.
Both Miguel Almiron and Matty Longstaff continued to get goals. Matt Ritchie had two fantastic crosses in the first half that led to the first two goals. Matty’s touch on his goal was sublime.

We also saw Joelinton get his first goal since August. It was an excellent cross by our debut boy Tom Allan.

However, the highlight of the evening has to be no one being forced off with an injury. Next, the lads face Oxford United at St James Park on the 25th of January.
Let’s hope we can get another comfortable win for a spot in the fifth round.
