Last Minute Goal Denies Newcastle Kids Victory Over Manchester City
After kicking off the season with no wins in five league games, Newcastle’s kids came within a whisker of following up last week’s 5-2 win over Derby with a victory over Manchester City.
United took the lead with an own goal by City’s Adarabioyo after 22 minutes, however only seconds after half-time Dilrosun levelled it for the home side.
Holland picked up a second yellow card and United’s Sean Longstaff hammered home the resultant free-kick.
With seconds left it was heartbreak for Newcastle as Buckley scored from a corner to grab a last gasp point for City.
However, the action wasn’t finished, with United storming up the other end of the pitch and only a last ditch tackle from Manchester City’s Kongolo preventing a dramatic late late winner for the visitors.
International call-ups meant a number of players were missing on both sides.
For Newcastle, Paul Woolston and Freddie Woodman were both away with England so a short-term loan was agreed with, ironically, Manchester United’s George Dorrington who made his Newcastle debut.
