Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Sheffield Wednesday defeat

Newcastle Utd - Striped Fans

The Magpies suffered their four consecutive defeat on Wednesday night.

Newcastle United’s dismal start to the season continued on Wednesday night as they were dumped out of the League Cup by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The fixture was viewed as welcome respite from the Premier League and a chance to gain some much needed confidence, but events transpired much differently.

An insipid Magpies team failed to threaten enough against an Owls side that had made 10 changes from their win against Fulham at the weekend.

Lewis McGugan’s powerful strike from the edge of the box in the 76th minute proved to be the difference as Steve McClaren’s men struggled in front of goal.

Siem de Jong managed Newcastle’s first shot on target in the 85th minute, as a team currently positioned in the bottom half of England’s second tier outfought and outplayed their top flight counterparts.

The Magpies left the field to boos and things don’t get any easier with Chelsea's visit to Tyneside next, followed by a trip to Manchester City.

Newcastle fans were dismayed at their team’s latest setback and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on another tough night at the office:
