If you were a neutral watchin this on the telly, you'd be ower the moon with this see-saw game!
The sequence of events were az follows:
2nd minute: Isak's cross finds Sean Longstaff and he forces the baall into the Leazes net to open the scorin for NUFC--BUT the linesman flagged for offside and the goal woz quickly (for a change) ruled oot!
Man City goalie Edison woz injured in the collision with Longstaff and woz subsequently replaced by Ortega
26th minute: A Kyle Walker cross iz back heeled into the Gallowgate net by Silva to put wor visitors 0-1 up!
35th minute: We fought back and just 9 minutes later when Bruno put Isak through and he hit a curlin shot into the corner of the goal to level the scores!
37th minute: We were still celebratin the goal and hardy had time to get wor breath back when Anthony Gordon hit a wonderful curlin shot from the other side of the pitch which sailed into the net to send the crowd crazy! 2-1 up at the break!
74th minute: De Bruyne then came on for The Blue Moonies and he hadn't been on the pitch for more than 5 minutes, when he hit a screamer into the corner of the net with Dubravka in the Toon goal unable to reach the shot! 2-2
91st minute: Then injury time heartbreak yet again for the black n whites when, just az it woz annoonced that there would be 3 minutes stoppage time, De Bruyne hit a cross to find Oscar Bobb who from close in toe poked the baall into the back of the net! 2-3 final score!
It woz certainly a bitter pill to swallow, az we slipped to halfway doon the Premyaa Leegue table to 10th position!
Attendance: 52,198 (3,200 Blue Moonies, who sang defiently "That's why we're champions!" az WE exited the groond in a shattered state!
