Newcastle fans react on Twitter after Aleksandar Mitrovic's debut against York City

Newcastle slipped to a 2-1 defeat against York City.

Newcastle's preparations for the Premier League didn't go to plan on Wednesday night, as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat against York City.

The League Two outfit took a 2-0 lead before Ayoze Perez pulled a goal back for the Magpies, but it wasn't enough to trigger a fightback from Steve McClaren's men.

Of course, the priority at this stage is building up fitness ahead of the new season, and fans were given a first glimpse of new signing Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Serbian striker, 20, joined from Belgian side Anderlecht earlier this month, and is seen as a huge signing for the Magpies having been prolific with Anderlecht. 

The huge forward made his debut at Bootham Cresecent, but couldn't find the back of the net before being substituted late into the game.

It's early days for Mitrovic, and whilst some fans were concerned with his failure to find the net, supporters on Twitter moved to ease those fears, suggesting that Mitrovic had a decent game against York, and will find the back of the net when he gains more fitness and plays alongside his new team mates more regularly.

Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans after Mitrovic made his debut against York City on Wednesday evening...
