Toon draw 2-2 with WBA at St James' Park

Newcastle United made a spirited comeback from going behind twice in a breathtaking clash against title contenders West Bromwich Albion at St James'Park on a night when Peter Lovenkrands scored a special goal dedicated to his father.

The home side went behind in the 13th minute when Jonas Olsson latched onto a Graham Dorran pass and neatly putting passed Steve Harper. Danny Guthrie equalised with a fantastic free-kick in the 25th minute.

After the break, WBA snatched the lead with a headed goal from Roman Bednar, but Danish striker Peter Lovenkrands made it 2-2 just seven minutes later with a headed finish of his own.

The Magpies pressed on, and in the dying seconds could have won the match as Jonas Gutierrez burst into the West Brom box but his weighted pass could not reach Andy Carroll in time for the England U21 International to slot it home.

The draw meant that Newcastle increased their lead at the top to three points, and must now focus on their next match against Crystal Palace on the 27th of January.

i tink we have to change our mindset about signing danny simpson..he was nt unable to stop thomas on the right side...besides we nid a right winger..or some creativity in the middle to break thru wba defence...also last night..shola was poor...he should have started peter and andy..or even giving nile a chance... lastly..we nid a right back/right winger/creativity midfielder...striker(maybe put on hold)

we really need 1-2 creative and pacey midfielders.please so as to break thru more stubborn defence...since our striker peter is now in red hot form...this is very important and urgent..since last season...we should break the partnership of nolan and smith and guthrie...they have skills..but lack of pace and creativity..we should bring in jack whilshere..or tom cleverly..
