Reserves Lead The Way

Reserves Lead The Way

Graeme Souness has his problems, but Tommy Craig's Newcastle United Reserves maybe suffering from injuries, but they stretched their unbeaten run to six games against Liverpool at Kingston Park.

They move to third place in the Reserve League North thanks to 82nd minute error from Liverpool right-back David Raven. He failed to see goalkeeper Paul Willis rushing off his line as he covered a Matty Pattison through-ball and when Raven unwittingly rolled the ball goalwards from 16 yards, the pair collided and United midfielder Chris Farman was able to run the ball into the empty net.

The goal settled a close encounter in which Liverpool had taken a 12th-minute lead when Neil Mellor who took advantage of a Paul Huntington stumble to angle a low shot past keeper Tim Krul (pictured).

The Magpies drew level in the 34th minute. The busy Pattison played in Craig Baxter on the edge of the box and when Baxter's shot was blocked, Carl Finnigan followed up to drill a low shot past the diving Willis into the left corner.

NUFC RESERVES: Krul; Shanks, Cave (Deverdics 45), Edgar, Huntington, Gate, Baxter, Smylie, Finnigan, Pattison, Farman. Subs (not used): Terrell, Cavener, Forster.


LFC RESERVES: Willis; Raven (Smith, 85 mins), Barragan, Roque-Farrero, Antwi, Hobbs, Anderson, Peltier, Mellor (Calliste, 70 mins), Mannix (Idrizaj, 65 mins), Guthrie. Subs (not used): O'Donnell, Roberts.
