Kevin Keegan wasn't impressed with his teams first half showing and concedes that the Toon were fortunate to go in 2-2 with West Ham at Upton Park, however the second half performance and the character to battle back did impress him: 'We've come in at half-time and we've told the players the truth - we've been awful and we're 2-2,' Keegan told Sky Sports. 'Second half we were much better, we had two very young men playing centre backs today against some experienced players and so we knew we might have some problems.
'But they came through it second half, fought their way back, showed a lot of character, something again earlier in the season that they might have been questioned on.'
Mark Noble and Dean Ashton had West Ham in a commanding position but two Toon goals in as many minutes in the closing minutes of the first half from Obafemi Martins and Geremi ensured the Toon came away from London with a point.
Was a point deserved, or did the Toon get more luck than they deserved, or maybe not even enough?
