Newcastle Utd - Striped Fans

Newcastle United striker went from a smile to a grimace as the side lost to Everton.

Seydou Doumbia was an unused substitute as Newcastle United lost 3-0 to Everton last night.

And his pre-game smile quickly turned to a grimace as he watched on from the sidelines.

Doumbia was a transfer deadline day signing from CSKA Moscow, and hopes to start making an impact for the team.

Last night at Goodison Park was tough viewing for most Newcastle fans, while manager Steve McClaren told SkySports the team's display was unacceptable, admitting his frustration with the team's performance.

Newcastle managed only three shots on target to Everton's seven, and will need to increase that tally when they host West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

Doumbia needs to prove his fitness in training this week to McClaren in order to get the nod to start, and avoid having to watch on from the bench again.

Newcastle remain stuck in the relegation zone as a result of last night's loss, two points short of 17th placed Norwich City.
