Eddie Howe’s problems at Newcastle took another turn last night as the Magpies winless run stretched to 14 with a 1-1 draw with Norwich.
Howe’s Newcastle side wasn’t helped by an early red card for Ciaran Clark but they are still the only top flight side without a win this season after their draw against Norwich.
Clark’s dismissal open the door for Norwich early on as Martin Dubravka kept out Billy Gilmour.
But despite playing with a man light, Newcastle were handed a helping hand on the hour, as Federico Fernandez’s header was handled by Gilmour.
And with the expectant home fans sensing a win, stand in skipper Callum Wilson stepped up to squeeze one past Tim Krul.
However, there was to be no fairytale for Howe as Norwich kept a sting in their tail late on.
Gilmour’s cross was recycled back into the box by Dimitris Giannoulis and Teemu Pukki slipped his man to crash home the equaliser.
