Match Summary Newcastle could have drawn level at the top. The gates were closed at 2.50, leaving the St John Ambulance to deal with fainting fans. Rookes appears to handle, but the ref refuses Magpies a penalty, then Reid misses from a yard. Phillips holds off a challenge to fire home Reid’s pass.
