Newcastle Grab Early Goal And Take 1-0 Lead Into The Break At Burton



Newcastle were much improved out of the gate at Burton tonight than on Tuesday at Rotherham. Ryan Fraser and Joelinton caused the Brewers a few problems during the half after some attacks down the flanks. Burton grew into the match late after not creating anything early on. Jacob Murphy’s early goal has Newcastle up 1-0 at the break.

Newcastle were set up in their 5-3-2 to start the match. Woodman was in goal with a back three of Krafth, Fernandez, and Schar. Murphy and Ritchie were the wingbacks. Hendrick was behind Hayden and Sean Longstaff in the midfield with Joelinton and Fraser the two strikers.


The Magpies struck first with a goal from Jacob Murphy in the 6th minute. A great ball from Ritchie sprung Joelinton down the left. The Brazilian played the ball into the box where a deflection found Murphy near the back post. The wing-back fired it home from a tight angle to give Newcastle the early lead.

Newcastle had a great opportunity to double the lead in the 26th minute. Fraser broke down the left and found Joelinton. The striker cut inside and launched a shot from inside the box. However, his effort was blocked.

After the 30 minute mark, Burton grew into the match. The hosts enjoyed long spells of possession with Newcastle not seeing much of the ball and sitting deep. Newcastle had a late half-chance from a corner but Fernadez’s header was easily saved by the Burton keeper.

All in all, it was decent first half from the lads considering all the players missing. Assistant coach Graeme Jones is also back from holiday after his spell with England.

    Don’t be daft man! How could it be 6-1? I already said it was 7-1 and Keegan scored. Keep up! 🙂

    Jail….yes it would make a great name for the league….I have thought about it but my work schedule is all over the place and have always made fun of everyone I know over here doing the NFL fantasy leagues but what the heck I may have another think….is there a cutoff date or is it when the 3rd league gets filled up?

    Burton 0-2 #NUFC

    A corner from the far side is whipped into the penalty area, Joelinton rises unmarked & powers a header into the net.

    Huge cheers from the away end when he is lifted up from the ground by his team-mates & warmly embraced.

    Designer of the strip needs their arses kicking – all players have a number four on the front of the shirts or is that to confuse the opposition.
