Newcastle United earned another fine victory this weekend.

Newcastle United completed their pre-season preparations with a 3-2 victory against Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem on Saturday, with strikes from Dwight Gayle and Jack Colback and an own-goal from Kelvin Leerdam sealing the win.

A late fightback from Vitesse almost took the shine off the first-half performance but the Magpies held out for yet another win and now they will be hoping to take their good form into the Championship for the vital matches ahead.

One player who helped maintain Newcastle’s undefeated streak was summer signing Grant Hanley, who looked impressive throughout.

Newcastle Manager Rafa Benitez knew he had to strengthen his back line following the departure of Fabricio Coloccini and he has done that by bringing in the ex-Blackburn Rovers player.
