Newcastle Take 2-1 Lead Into The Break At Doncaster In Front Of 3,000 Fans



Newcastle were much improved in the first half at Doncaster this evening from last weekend. The Magpies took a 2-0 lead through Ryan Fraser and Sean Longstaff before Rovers brought one back.

The lads were set up in a 5-3-2 with Hayden, Lascelles, and Dummett as the back three. Murphy and Lewis were the wing-backs with Sean Longstaff and Hendrick in the midfield. Fraser was behind Wilson and Saint-Maximin upfront.

3,000 Newcastle fans made the trip and made their presence felt.

Newcastle took the lead in the 12th minute on a low strike from Ryan Fraser, who cut in from the left to fire a shot past Louis Jones in the Doncaster goal.

Newcastle doubled the lead with a goal from Sean Longstaff in the 24th minute. It started from Allan Saint-Maximin leaving right-back Kyle Knoyle done and dusted. The Frenchman then played the ball into the box and after a deflection found a sliding Sean Longstaff, who poked it in from close range.

Doncaster soon brought one back through Tommy Rowe. A trialist took a long effort that Dan Langley got a hand to but it landed in the path of Rowe, who was able to slot the rebound home to make it 2-1.

This was a decent performance with Allan Saint-Maximin once again terrorizing the opponent’s defense. We’ll see if Bruce makes any changes at half-time but hopefully, some of the young guns will get on the pitch at some point in the second half.

    Apologies, there are some things you just don’t want to imagine.

    Mund, I can’t even use the ‘but it’s cold!’ excuse.

    Callum Wilson scores his first goal in front of #NUFC fans – & at their end, too. Again, a lovely counter-attack from #NUFC. Sean Longstaff did very well on the right, Fraser flicked it on to Wilson, who finished calmly.

    “Super Cal”, #NUFC fans chant.

    Willy Wilson is like the smiling assassin.

    He plays with a smile on his face but will gladly fcuk a defender up whilst he’s grinning.

    Top guy and a top player.

    Lull the oposition into a false sense of security, they think “oh this lads sound, he’s smiling”

    No, he will gladly ruin you while you stand there thinking hes a nice guy.

    Top guy

    This is like prison break. I wonder if the wife is part of ‘the company’. They’re erasing people now. Dont be surprised if we never see or hear from carson again. Maybe magscar will soon be ‘missing’

    The Toon fans will be loving it, bit of normality back in their lives eventually. Decent night out Donny as well. Definite overnighter on a Friday that. A good result, followed by a good session, followed by a good mixed kebab.
    What’s not to like about that πŸ˜€

    “@ Jail

    100 notes on 4-1 wow,, thats how deluded people and the press are, they have no clue and have done no homework, its all based on hearsay.

    mind you, id take your money, 4-1 they wont make top 8, you have to score goals in todays game, something he does not know how todo, he dosnt even know how to set up a defense.
