First Half

PSV's goal was a bit of a nightmare for the Newcastle defence, indeed they were almost suicidal in their attempts!

First Woodgate mis-timed an aerial challenge with Vennegoor of Hesselink that allowed him to flick the ball on towards Kezman. Then Hughes should have easily "found Row Z" with his attempted clearance but didn't - and now the path to goal was wide open for Kezman, and he didn't need a second offering...

PSV were equally at fault for Newcastle's equaliser when deep, deep into first-half injury time van der Schaaf needlessly tripped Bernard to give away the free-kick from which Newcastle scored.

Honours- and blushes - even at the end of the half.
