They were attracted to Fulham with ten men and were very disappointed in Newcastle for failing to use Joachim Anderson’s controversial dispatch.
In the first period Newcastle were away from the pace and Matt Richie’s dream own goal was found behind their worthy.
Callum Wilson was caught by Fulham splitting after being shown a red card clipped by Anderson. Wilson sent a spot kick, but could not press their advantage at home in Newcastle. Here are the ones Lee Ryder’s player ratings.
One of the few people exposed to debt.
He made himself available enough time, but could not find the medical ball in the box.
Late handball claim from Fulham escaped. Other than that it is stable enough.
An important block to deny Lukman from the free-kick. Not out in the second half.
10 months later inevitably rusted. Fought after being thrown to the deep end.
Own goal horror. I tried to pull the Newcastle back, but not enough.
No leadership ability to roar Newcastle into three points. There were 90 touches, but many of them did not threaten to win it.
Better trip than Leeds. One more work in progress.
Probably the brightest outfield player. The key ball to help Wilson win the penalty.
No wonder his number was coming.
Focused on helping to get a point back. Where would he be in Newcastle without him?
Isaac Hayden 7 (for Fernandez 46)
Helped the game back in Newcastle with consistent performance.
Dwight Gayle 5 (for Jolinton 75)
Not much damage.
Ryan Fraser (for Dummet 79)
* Subs should play for 15 minutes.
