Our first sighting of Aleksandar Mitrovic in a competitive match for Newcastle, was almost our last for a while…

Only a few seconds after coming on, Mitrovic produced a really crazy challenge on Southampton left-back Matt Targett.

Launching himself from some yards away, Newcastle’s new signing cleared the visiting player out, right in front of both linesman and referee.

He could easily have been shown a red (the ref only brandishing a yellow) and after the match, Steve McClaren said that he is sure the players will have had a word with the Serbian striker about how it could have cost Newcastle the game.
