Bolton substitute Ricardo Gardner took just 80 seconds to defeat Steve Harper at the Reebok Stadium in a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

Despite a battling performance from the relegation-haunted Magpies, sadly it was nowhere near enough to see off Bolton in a result that leaves United fans deeply disillusioned.

Blog on the Tyne was at the Reebok to bring you regular updates from Newcastle United's clash with Bolton Wanderers.

In a season in which the good ship Newcastle United has sailed through such stormy waters that at times have left players and fans alike both traumatised and mentally fragile, relative calm is in the air at the Toon's training HQ in Benton.

An unbeaten February has certainly done Newcastle no harm at all while the return of some familiar faces emerging from the treatment room have at least given some fans hope that disaster can still be averted.

Certainly caretaker Chris Hughton, left holding the baby for the seond time this season, can see light at the end of the tunnel but going into the away trip to Bolton Wanderers the calmness in the pre-spring airs could quickly disappear.

And while United have managed to put a chair up against the cupboard for now, the skeletons that have haunted the Toon this season are still waiting to jump out one by one if the Mags fail to get anything out of the trip to planet Reebok.

Jeff StellingSo Newcastle United are officially a laughing stock then, we are the biggest joke in football and our fans have no right to demand success, trophies or even aspire to top four place?

Once again our friends in the south have given it to Newcastle United fans with both barrels even though none of the current mess has much to do with them, most of the stick flying around stems from the appointment of one of London's favourite sons Dennis Wise being appointed back in January.

Now though with outsiders - a lot of them who probably don't stray beyond Jeff Stelling, Charlie Nicholas and Paul Merson on a Saurday - having a good old go at Newcastle, perhaps as a moment of light relief it's worth taking a LIGHT HEARTED (well you have to laugh at yourself don't you?) look at why most other football clubs are just as bad.

Cilla Black would have loved it.

I mean out of all the fixtures we are heading to Bolton and hopefully to beat them at their own game.

Come on, the last few years at the Reebok have been awful for Toon fans.

But now we are going back with the man who inflicted all the misery on us in charge.
