Newcastle 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1 – Monday 26 December 2016

An interesting match but not the right result.

What will Rafa Benitez make of Newcastle’s latest defeat, their sixth in total and fourth at St James Park.

It was a frustrating night for Newcastle fans but what do you think went wrong.

I don’t think ‘enjoy’ is the right word but watch the 10 minutes of official match highlights below and relive the key moments in the match.

A small word of warning though, as the footage is from Sheffield Wednesday’s official Youtube channel, so the commentary may be ‘slightly’ biased…
