Preston 1 Newcastle 2  –  Saturday 29 October 2016 3pm

The two form teams of the Championship, meeting only four days after that 6-0 demolition at St James Park.

The scoreline may have been significantly closer but arguably this was an even better performance and result, considering Preston had beaten Norwich and Huddersfield in recent weeks, as well as drawing 2-2 with Chris Hughton’s Brighton who stuffed the Canaries 5-0 yesterday.

The match at Deepdale saw two great goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic, as well as some determined defending and flying saves from Karl Darlow.

Enjoy it all once again below in these official highlights of yesterday’s win for Newcastle.
