Newcastle United 0 Crystal Palace 1

St. James’ Park… Saturday April 6th… 3pm

Attendance: 51,926

Ticket: £33 – Programme: £3

A first home league defeat of the year against Roy Hodgson’s Eagles, and a frustrating one. Salomon Rondon had a first half goal disallowed, Florian Lejeune being stretchered off with another suspected cruciate ligament injury…

Newcastle created the bulk of the chances, amassing 18 shots (5 on goal) in total, but lost to Palace’s only shot on target. A late penalty, won by Wilfried Zaha and converted by Luka Milivojevic….

Still stuck on 35 points, almost there, but not quite…
