Disappointment for Newcastle United fans

One suspects that many Newcastle fans will share Quinn’s thoughts on the final result.

Playing at home gave the Magpies an advantage, and they should have used that to full effect and picked up all three points from the encounter.

Moreover, Fulham are struggling for survival in the Premier League and have not been in great form in recent weeks.

The result means that Newcastle are 15th in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 18 matches, five points clear of the relegation zone.

Benitez’s side will take on Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the Premier League on Boxing Day.
