Blog on the Tyne at the big derby match
A PENALTY from Shola Ameobi rescued a point for Newcastle United in the Tyne-Wear derby, and Blog on the Tyne was at the game to bring you regular updates.
Both clubs have flirted with the relegation zone this season and both were desperate for three points to pull themselves away from the pack at the foot of the table.
Djibril Cisse was played in by Malbranque and he slotted home for 1-0 on 32 minutes to leave the Newcastle fans biting their nails.
But Newcastle won a penalty on 67 minutes when Malbranque tripped Taylor and Shola stepped up to smash it past Fulop and make it 1-1.
