ACTION, AZ WE ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)

"GOOD FORTUNE & 'RICH' PICKINGS!"

Matt Richie scored hiz 6th goal in 5 games to propel NUFC back to the top of the Championship (for the time bein') and hiz shot at the Leazes End in the forst half deflected off a Coonty defender and flew into the net!
Thiz somehow waz the anly goal of the game---aa say "somehow" az both sides had great opportunities to score, but fluffed their chances!
Diame had a great shot brilliantly saved in the forst half---Perez had a lob cleared off the line and Mitro missed a couple of good chances az well after the break!

Tom Ince for Darbee, in particular looked certain to score az he stood near the left hand post in the 2nd half, but inexplicably put the baall wide from one yard oot!---Good fortune waz smilin' on us for certain, az we put in anothaa disjointed performance and Coonty manager 'The Wally with the Brolly' can 'coont' himself unlucky not to come away with a draw!
