On Saturday we won a game we thought we’d lost and last neet we drew a game we thought we’d won!

Evaatin hadn’t won a Premyaa Leegue game since before Xmas and so it looked like an easy 3 points in wor quest for Europe!

NUFC started off well az we attacked the Leazes End and we took the lead in the. 15th minute when Isak received the baall from Harvey Barnes, he beat one defender and coolly placed the baall into the back of the net with mackem miscreant Pickford well beaten!

It haz to be said that Pickford made crucial saves after this to keep the score at 1-0 by half time!

Of course if you’re anly one goal aheed and have aall guns blazin, it just takes one chance for a poor team like Evaatin to grab an equaluser!

After Isak, Barnes, Murphy and Bruno missed glorious chances to put the game beyond doubt, Dan Burn scored but VAR said he woz offside and the goal woz disallowed!—An Evaatin defender (can’t remember who?) hit his own post—It just wasn’t wor day!

And then the sting in the tail! Lewis Hall went off injured in the 79th minute and woz replaced by Paul Dummett who had played less than 5minutes in the last 2 years----and it took him just 9 minutes to grab Evaatin’s  Ashley Young roond the neck in the box, but play continued az we attacked the Gallowgate goal!—-we’d got away with it!---BUT!---aall of a sudden VAR got involved and eventually a penalty at The Leazes End woz given to wor visitors!

Calvin-Lewin took it and aalthough Toon goalie Debravka got a hand to it, it ended up in the back of the net with full time approachin!

10 mins stoppage time woz added, but to nee avail and two points were dropped by the dum decision by Dummett to grab Ashley Young when there woz nee danger at aall!

The result keeps us in 8th place, just ootside the European places, when we could have been 7th had we won!

Evaatin have now went 13 games without a win— Their worst run in the Premyaa Leegue!

Attendance: 52,135 (3,200 Toffee Noses)
