Stoke City Earn Narrow Newcastle United Win

Stoke City held out to defeat Newcastle United 1-0 in the English Premier League at the Britannia Stadium on Monday night.  Stoke took an early lead with Peter Crouch bagging a goal on 15 minutes.  A decent touch inside and shot from Paul Dummett was deflected over for a corner as the Magpies looked for the equaliser.

Newcastle continued pressing but could not get a shot to test Asmir Begovic sufficiently.  Mark Hughes’ side came back from half-time looking for a goal to put the visitors out of the contest.  The hosts almost doubled their advantage with Victor Moses but Tim Krul saved the day.

Jack Colback had a chance to record a goal in front of the away fans but he hit the crossbar with the goal at his mercy.  It finished with a Potters win at home, while the Magpies remain winless after six games as the pressure increases on Alan Pardew.
