Newcastle 2-0 Fulham Highlights
Goals from Mark Viduka and Michael Owen were enough to hand Newcastle their first win in 13 and boss Kevin Keegan’s first on his return, against Fulham.
Viduka struck in the sixth minute when he collected a pass from Geremi and fired low past goalkeeper Kasey Keller. Michael Owen should have doubled their lead with a close-range header before nodding in from Geremi’s free-kick. Jimmy Bullard had Fulham’s best chances but his long-range efforts were comfortably dealt with by Steve Harper. The victory will be a massive relief to Newcastle and in particular Keegan who was already a hot favourite with some bookmakers to get the boot before the end of the season. But for struggling Fulham the signs seem ominous. The visiting team were gifted enough possession during the first half but time-and-time again failed to come up with the killer ball.
