Match Report

Newcastle United supplied the opposition for the first of two matches to mark the Club's 90th Anniversary and we celebrated in style with a fully merited victory over Ruud Gullit's multi-million pound outfit.

Last season's top scorer, Davie Dodds, took just six minutes to get back on the goal trail, bundling the ball over the line after his first effort was blocked by Perez. Goal number two followed fifteen minutes later. Steven Thompson robbed Dabizas out on the right and crossed for Jim Paterson to head high into the net. Siggi Jonsson, playing in midfield, had a header cleared off the line before the interval.

Siggi Jónsson did enjoy better luck just after the hour mark when he met a Hugh Davidson corner with his head, the ball going in just under the bar. Perez denied Joaquim Ferraz after Billy Dodds had set up the chance for him before Newcastle finally made some impact in attack. Their strong finish earner them a consolation goal when Paul Robinson despatched a curling shot from 20 yards into the bottom right corner.
