Newcastle have again missed the chance to secure a crucial Premier League win as Eddie Howe’s side were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Watford.

Newcastle had look set for a morale boosting three points on Tyneside but Claudio Ranieri’s Watford conjured up a late rally.

Howe’s charges did enjoy the better of it before the break with Joelinton prodding an effort against the crossbar and debutant Chris Wood coming close to an opener.

But despite that frustration, Newcastle kept to together after the break, as Allan Saint-Maximin batter home a superb finish.

That did zap Watford into life in the final half hour but Josh King and Moussa Sissoko both squandered key chances.

But despite doing their best waste these openings, Watford did eventually grab an equaliser as Joao Pedro powered home Kiko Femenia’s cross.

Full Time from St. James’ Park it’s Newcastle 1 Watford 1
