1-0Neil Harris. An attack which involved the whole forward line saw a shot from Cowan being saved by Jackson but he couldn’t hold the ball and it came back out to Harris who hit a low first-time volley beyond the now stranded Jackson.
85 mins
2-0Stan Seymour. Cowan, bearing down on goal, could see no way through the Villa defence so he laid the ball off to Seymour who controlled it well and hit an absolute rocket of a shot that gave the keeper no chance.

Great Victory For Newcastle!

In what was described as a highly entertaining game, full of skilfull football and competitive action, there was very little goalmouth action. Indeed both defences were more than happy to conceded throw-ins and adopt a "safety first" approach. However with the game looking likely to go into extra time Newcastle exploded into action with two goals in three of the last eight minutes to seal a great victory.
