Only five minutes later and a harmless low cross was totally missed by Enda Stevens, leaving Allan Saint-Maximin with a simple finish from ten yards.
A professional NUFC job from that point, apart from Billy Sharp somehow missing with a free header from six yards out which would have levelled things.
An excellent left foot shot and close range finish from Joelinton then providing a comfortable final scoreline.
The Brazilian having totally messed up a simple chance when one on one with the keeper in the first half.
