Newcastle 1 QPR 1

By Lee Ryder on Sep 30, 09 01:36 PM

NEWCASTLE United drew 1-1 at St James's park and there was no doubt who was happiest with the draw.

Newcastle's 100% home record came to an end and a first half penalty miss was certainly not lost on Toon fans from Danny Guthrie.

Newcastle created a few chances in the second half but Marlon Harewood's late equaliser ensure their unbeaten record is still in tact.

However, the positives for Newcastle are that they have a three point cushion over West Brom in second place.

They can extend that even further on Saturday against Bristol City before they sign off for the international break too.

We were second best for most of this and have to be happy with a draw. No pace or flair in the centre of midfield coupled with some careless passing and Guthrie having a altogether terrible day at the office. Hope we're better on Saturday.

I thought the ref was shocking last night.
Enrique had a poor game and cost us the first goal with his dallying, in my opinion. The midfield seem to have all been practicing the David Batty sideways pass as there was no creativity at all. Our only hope of creativity was in the guise of Jonas, in the second half, who quite frankly looked like he couldn't give a stuff. I agree with Ted on Guthrie, poor game for him - prompting my fiance to shout "Guthrie you are sh*t about 5 times after his greedy free kick, but I struggle to find any of the midfield that played much better.
Taylor, Simpson and the new lad Khizanishvili looked steady. Good to see Harewood score on his home debut.
I thought we were unlucky at times, but failed to capitalise on our chances properly. We are in desperate need of someone to pick the ball up and run with it!! FOWARDS!!!
Regardless of what people say about this league, the players we had on the field last night should be beating, what i saw as an average QPR. I'm a little concerned that as the season goes by, we're becoming a little inconsistant.
On a positive note, we are 3 points clear at the top of the league and the linesman got one in the face!
