MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€Scottโ€™s injury compounded the night, because we obviously fear the worst.

โ€œHeโ€™s definitely turned his ankle over and we donโ€™t know how serious it is until we see X-rays and scans. The consequences of losing him are huge, but letโ€™s hope itโ€™s not as bad as what we think.

โ€œI thought we were decent in the first half, Newcastle hadnโ€™t been near our goal, and yet we gave a poor goal away. After the restart, weโ€™ve given another one away and the second one was comical.

โ€œAnd the two or three opportunities weโ€™ve had, weโ€™ve not taken them. Thatโ€™s where we are at the moment.โ€

Steve Bruce, Monday, 20 February 2017.

*BBC Sport*
Monday, 20 February 2017

Newcastle United scored a goal in each half to beat Aston Villa and go a point clear at the top of the Championship.

Yoan Gouffran netted the opener from four yards and another goalmouth scramble resulted in Henri Lansbury turning the ball into his own net.

But Newcastleโ€™s victory was soured by the loss of top scorer Dwight Gayle, who limped off after 33 minutes.

Villa striker Scott Hogan was carried off on a stretcher late on and they are now winless in nine league matches.

Hogan, who cost ยฃ12m from Brentford in January, landed awkwardly after challenging for a header at a late Villa corner.

Gayle - the Championshipโ€™s leading scorer with 20 league goals this season - appeared to suffer a recurrence of the hamstring problem which had kept him out for six matches.

Villa remain six points above the relegation zone, having collected only one point in 2017, although Steve Bruceโ€™s side had more than matched the Magpies until they fell behind.

Iceland midfielder Birkir Bjarnason went closest for the visitors, failing to hook in Hoganโ€™s flick-on from close range and later having a shot saved by Karl Darlow.

Newcastleโ€™s opening goal came soon after Gayleโ€™s departure, with Villa failing to properly clear a Matt Ritchie cross and French winger Gouffran tapping in.

After that, the hosts took control and often looked likely to extend their lead, although the second goal which took them above Brighton in the table came in fortunate circumstances.

Jamaal Lascelles met Jonjo Shelveyโ€™s corner and his effort hit Lansbury, who was stationed at the near post, before ricocheting into the net.
