Newcastle United's Christian Atsu has a shot

Newcastle United secured a 3-1 victory at home to Brentford on Saturday courtesy of two goals from striker Dwight Gayle and one from defender Ciaran Clark.

The Magpies have got over a shaky start to life in the Championship and they currently find themselves second in the table, just a point behind leaders Norwich City with 12 games played.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez continues to rotate his squad but loan signing Christian Atsu got another run-out on Saturday after scoring what proved to be the winning goal against Rotherham United before the international break.

The 24-year-old could not score this time round yet he still put in a good performance, prompting some Newcastle fans to hope his temporary deal is ultimately made permanent.
