Newcastle United vs. Huddersfield Town - Football Match Report


For Pardew, the Newcastle supporters have spotted Almiron's ability and the former Magpies manager insists that the Paraguayan is not a complete unknown, having shone at Atlanta United in the MLS. Having had Tommy Smith sent off for a risky tackle on Almiron after 20 minutes, the visitors were on the back foot for the majority of the game.

Jonjo Shelvey could return for Newcastle but after wins for both on Saturday, Rafa Benitez and Sean Dyche must be tempted to field unchanged sides.

Newcastle have been able to get results under Rafael Benitez, but this was the best their attack has looked all season and new boy Almiron was the key.

Newcastle's goals both came in the second-half.

Over that eight-game period, only the two Manchester clubs have won more points.

A wonderful counter-attack nearly saw Almiron claim a goal early on, his dinked finish over Jonas Lossl striking the left-hand post, which Rondon then rattled on the follow up.

Smith saw red after a wild challenge on Almiron that saw referee Kevin Friend immediately besieged by home players before dismissing the Town captain. He was off the ground and caught the Newcastle man and referee Kevin Friend rightly sends him on his way.

Huddersfield were fortunate to go in at the break with the scores goalless.

One change for Burnley as well.

Newcastle extended their lead six minutes later when Perez beat Lossl from Rondon's knock-down to leave the visitors in deep trouble.

Manquillo comes in at right-back for DeAndre Yedlin, who drops down to the bench.

Lossl produced a remarkable reaction save to turn substitute Kenedy's stinging volley on to the crossbar, and he needed the help of an upright to keep out Longstaff's curling 76th-minute attempt.

However, Burnley snatched the winning goal with seven minutes remaining through Ashley Barnes, who slotted home from close range after Gudmundsson's initial effort was saved.
