Stoke edge Newcastle at rainy Britannia
Posted by fifaplay on September 30th, 2014
The pressure FIFA Coins on Newcastle manager Alan Pardew cranked up as his side were beaten 1-0 by Stoke at a rain-drenched Britannia Stadium.
Newcastle were slow to react at the back as Peter Crouch headed in from the lively Victor Moses' cross in the 15th minute. And while there were other moments of defensive uncertainty from the visitors, they rarely looked like finding an equaliser, with Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic only really being called upon to make one decent save, keeping out Daryl Janmaat.
Jack Colback came close to levelling late on, but struck the bar from close range. Stoke might have had a penalty in the first half when Yoan Gouffran bundled over Moses, and substitute Marko Arnautovic then hit the post early in the second half.
Overall, Mark Hughes' team were value for what were their first points at home in the Premier League this season and takes them from 17th up to 11th.
Newcastle, meanwhile, stay second-bottom and without a league victory this term. They have won only once in 14 top-flight games stretching back to 2013/14, with ten of Runescape Gold those being losses.
