An entertaining friendly in the US saw Chelsea surrender a three-goal lead...
West Brom 2-3 Newcastle Highlights
Newcastle eased their relegation fears with victory at strugglers West Brom.
The build-up was overshadowed by the news that manager Joe Kinnear had been taken to hospital before the match.
But the Magpies eased their concerns when Damien Duff slotted in from 10 yards before Marc-Antoine Fortune equalised with a great turn and shot.
A low shot by Peter Lovenkrands and Steven Taylor’s header made it 3-1 before Fortune’s second late in the game ensured a thrilling finish.
Assistant boss Chris Hughton took charge of Newcastle in Kinnear’s absence and both he and Albion manager Tony Mowbray must have been dismayed by the antics of their backlines during the opening 10 minutes.
