Hearts 1 Newcastle 2 – Friday 14 July 7.45pm

Friday night saw Rafa Benitez take his squad to Tynecastle for the first NUFC friendly of pre-season.

A 2-1 win for the Magpies as Dwight Gayle continues on from where he left off last season, with another two goals for his collection.

A match packed full of incident, particularly in the first half, saw Hearts also grab a goal as well as take a quite shocking penalty.

Both teams also hit the woodwork in an entertaining and open match.
