It was a great evening this past Tuesday as Newcastle redeemed themselves with a 4-1 win over Rochdale. There were many great performances and some excellent goals.
Miguel Almiron continued to get goals scoring in his third straight match while Matty Longstaff added another beauty to his collection. Joelinton even got in on the act with a late strike for his first since August.
We also saw young Tom Allan not only get his debut but make an impact on the game. He put in a couple of crosses from the right, one of which Joelinton was able to put away.
Matt Ritchie made his first start since August and provided some outstanding crosses. He was also back to old tricks getting a little over-enthusiastic with his teammates.
