Jamaal Lascelles describes mood in Newcastle dressing room after Stoke draw

St James Park

Newcastle's players are disappointed after drawing with Stoke, according to Jamaal Lascelles.

Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles has told the Shields Gazette that the rest of the Magpies squad are disappointed having only managed to draw with Stoke City.

The Magpies went in to Saturday's game having lost 3-0 to rivals Sunderland just six days earlier, and needed a big response to give fans hope again.

However, Steve McClaren's men couldn't beat Stoke at St. James' Park, as Potters goalkeeper Jack Butland produced a number of sensational saves to earn his side a 0-0 draw.

Newcastle supporters were left frustrated having seen their side fail to score, but the game did see Jamaal Lascelles come on as a substitute, with the defender making just his third Premier League appearance.

The 21-year-old defender signed for the Magpies back in the summer of 2014, but returned to Nottingham Forest on a season-long deal to give him first-team football.

Now, Lascelles is looking to make an impact on Tyneside having been given exposure to Premier League football by manager McClaren, and he experienced a frustrating afternoon as Newcastle failed to break Stoke down.

Lascelles has spoken to the Shields Gazette about the game, and admitted that he dressing room was disappointing after the stalemate, and noted how Jack Butland kept Stoke in the game in the face of heavy pressure from Newcastle's attack.

"It’s still a good point," said Lascelles "But going into the changing room after the game with some of the lads, we were all disappointed we didn’t get all three points. We had quite a few chances, and Jack Butland, credit to him, made a few saves which obviously kept them in the game," he added.

With players like Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ayoze Perez, Georginio Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko, Newcastle certainly have plenty of attacking firepower, they just need to find their clinical edge - and a little bit more luck in front of goal, as they showed in the 6-2 win over Norwich City last month.
