To cap a night of surprises, most of them pleasant ones, Mike Williamson headed home Florian Thauvin’s perfect cross to make it Newcastle 4 Northampton 1.
A free-kick on the left and Thauvin showed the rest of the Newcastle squad how to deliver the ball.
The French winger struck in only the third minute on his debut (watch it here), before netting a hatotrick of assists, for de Jong, Janmaat and finally Williamson.
