Newcastle 2 Southampton 1 – Watch official match highlights and comeback goals here!
It ended Newcastle 2 Southampton 1 on Sunday afternoon.
Not quite sure how the Magpie ended up winning…but we got there in the end.
The Saints having dominated for over an hour, wasting a number of chances, before taking the lead after the break.
Played out in front of 10,000 empty seats and near silence, things eventually came to life after the introduction of Andy Carroll.
He won headers, got the ball to stick, as finally NUFC got a little bit of a foothold.
Carroll making his mark with a stunning cross, Shelvey heading home the all important equaliser.
The crowd at last came to life a little bit and another sub also made the difference soon after entering the contest.
An excellent low Sean Longstaff shot through a crowd of players could only be parried by the keeper, Federico Fernandez on hand to smash home the winner!
