However, a last gasp strike from Oleg Reabciuk won it for the visitors as Newcastle were unable to make the most of the few chances they created at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United remains up for sale as Mike Ashley looks to sell the club after more than 10 years in charge but while no buyer looks imminent, the suggestion of fan ownership has been put forward. Yahoo Sports’ Graham Ruthven, after the collapse of talks between Ashley and billionaire financier Amanda Staveley and far fetched rumours that boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is interested in buying the club, has called for the circus to stop and United fans to take control of their club.
