Glenn Roeder says the UEFA Cup and Carling cup ties are the reason for the poor league results, and says the extra-time on Tuesday took it out of his squad.
But the same goes for Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, who are all battling on three fonts at the moment - in Europe, Carling Cup and Premiership.
Roeder: 'We started off slowly, but that was because we had played a tough game in midweek that went into extra time. They had the better opportunities and they put us under a lot of pressure. We were hanging onto their coat tails for the first 45 minutes and we were happy at half time to be 0-0.
'We had to be better in the second half and we were. Some of the passing was great, we put them on the back foot and finished the game like the Newcastle that I know and how I want us to play.
'Normally a point away from home is the target, but we were so close to getting all three near the end there.
'We didn't want the final whistle to come, because if there was going to be a winner at that stage it was going to be us.'
