Watch here all the goals and official highlights from Newcastle 6 Preston 0 – Video
Newcastle 6 Preston 0 – Tuesday 25 October 2016
A night when Newcastle six but it could have easily been double that, hitting the woodwork three times and an open goal missed by Mohamed Diame.
Great entertainment for over forty nine thousand fans inside St James Park (unless you were a Preston fan!), relive it all below with these official highlights from the match.
First time I had seen the goals since watching the game in the flesh, hadn’t really appreciated how good those last two goals were from Diame and Perez.
Plus of course, great to see Aleksandar Mitrovic beating three defenders and the keeper in a six or seven yard run inside the box before a cool finish!
