Newcastle battle back after dreadful start

 

Club Brugge 2 Newcastle Utd 2:Shola Ameobi’s 14th European goal kept Newcastle’s campaign on track on an eventful evening against Club Brugge.

The 31-year-old struck from younger brother Sammy’s 43rd-minute pass two minutes after Vurnon Anita had dispatched a sweet volley to cancel out the 2-0 lead Brugge had been handed on a plate during an awful start by the visitors.

The Belgians went ahead with 14th minutes gone when Ivan Trickovski embarrassed skipper Fabricio Coloccini to register the first Group D goal conceded by Newcastle, and Jesper Jorgensen doubled their advantage within five minutes with Newcastle simply not at the races

However, the salvaged point sees Newcastle remain at the top of the group.
