Joselu came off the bench to earn Newcastle United a 1-1 draw in a crucial Premier League relegation battle with bottom club Swansea City at St James' Park.

Carlos Carvalhal has made a decent start to life with the Welsh club since taking over late last month and, despite his side having been on the backfoot for much of Saturday's contest, he appeared on course for a second win in three league games.

Jordan Ayew's header on the hour gave Swansea a surprise lead, punishing Newcastle for not capitalising on a host of opportunities to break the deadlock.

  Peter Beardsley under investigation after bullying allegation made at Newcastle Newcastle have launched an investigation after an allegation of bullying was made against Under-23s coach Peter Beardsley. Press Association Sport understands 22-year-old midfielder Yasin Ben El-Mhanni has lodged a complaint against the former Magpies and England striker.The club is not commenting on the matter, but it is understood that a grievance meeting has been scheduled.Beardsley made more than 300 appearances for the Tyneside club in two spells and was capped 59 times by his country during a glittering playing career which also took him to Liverpool and Everton among others.

It was left to skipper Lascelles to secure the three points for the Magpies , who rose to crash home a header off the underside of That was just a brief scare for the hosts, though, as Joselu – who joined United from Stoke exactly one month ago – twice went close to adding a second, dragging wide from

A first away win in the Premier League since 2015 sees the Magpies climb up to 10th in the table Swansea City 0, Newcastle United 1 . Jamaal Lascelles ( Newcastle United ) header from the Joselu ( Newcastle United ) right footed shot from outside the box is saved in the bottom right corner.

However, Swansea's advantage proved all too brief as Joselu, brought on for the profligate Dwight Gayle, levelled matters with a clever finish.

Rafael Benitez's men finished a largely entertaining encounter the stronger of the two sides but could not complete the turnaround.

Newcastle were left to settle for a point that will likely increase the Spanish manager's exasperation at a lack of transfer activity and delays in completing a long-expected takeover.

His side are just three points clear of the bottom three while Swansea stay at the foot of the table, four points adrift of safety, and now have the daunting proposition of home fixtures with Liverpool and Arsenal to come.

Newcastle dominated the early exchanges as Swansea struggled to keep hold of the ball, Gayle testing Lukasz Fabianski in the fourth minute with a header that the Pole comfortably saved.

FA adopt 'Rooney Rule' for future managerial searches

  FA adopt 'Rooney Rule' for future managerial searches Looking to provide equal opportunities for all involved in football, the FA have announced some major changes in their future job searches. Adopting their own version of the ‘Rooney Rule’ the FA have confirmed that at least one black or ethnic minority candidate will be considered for future England vacancies. The rule, named after former Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney, looks to hand minority candidates a fair and equal chance of earning some high-profile jobs to fight against discrimination within sport. In the NFL where this rule was first implemented, there has been an upturn in the number of black or minority candidates securing top head coaching roles in the league, and the FA hope that this will carry over to their sport.

The Magpies have only two points ahead of the number eighteen Stoke City and the run apart so not much in the right side of the Premier League. At Newcastle United , they will realize that there is some catch against Swansea City on Saturday.

Gayle should have done much better when he headed well wide after good work down the left from Perez, who could find neither power nor direction with an effort from the right of the box after Swansea again surrendered possession.

Paul Dummett lashed over from a Christian Atsu pull-back but the best chance of the half fell to Perez, who burst through on goal after latching on to Matt Ritchie's ball over the top, but was denied by Fabianski as he tried to sneak an effort underneath the goalkeeper's legs.

Former Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey curled well over with a free-kick from the edge of the area, the visitors perhaps feeling justice had been done after Christian Atsu was contentiously deemed to have been fouled.

Swansea will then have felt aggrieved not to have been awarded a penalty as a rare foray forward saw Mohamed Diame appear to block a Mike van der Hoorn effort with his arm.

West Brom attempt to beat Palace to Sakho signing

  West Brom attempt to beat Palace to Sakho signing West Brom are reportedly trying to swoop in on the nearly done deal of Diafra Sakho to Crystal Palace, in an attempt to bring the Senegalese to the Hawthorns, as per Dean Jones. The wantaway West Ham striker flew to France last summer on deadline day to try and force a move away from the London Stadium, but the deal ultimately fell through. Although he remains keen on a move to France, Sakho has had interest from new Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal, as well as Crystal Palace, where it looks like he could be heading. However, West Brom are looking to swoop in on the deal, with Alan Pardew wanting a striker in this transfer window, which is what he says the Baggies need to stay up in the Premier League. However, they are not alone when wanting to swoop in on the deal, with Rafa Benitez wanting to bring another striker to Newcastle United, with the front pairing of Joselu and Ayoze Perez not scoring frequently enough for the Spanish manager. The 28-year-old has been struggling for game time and goals this season, featuring in just the Hammers’ League Cup wins against Cheltenham Town and Bolton Wanderers. But he has since been getting more Premier League action, however, he just has the two goals to his name so far. So Sakho could be on a quick move across London to Selhurst Park, but the Baggies could step in, needing a striker, having already been linked with a loan move for Danny Ings. But the question is not if he will join West Brom, it’s if his goals can help them survive.

Swansea City vs Newcastle United . 4:00pm Sunday 10th September. The Magpies skipper's towering 76th-minute header proved decisive as the visitors secured a First , Joselu thought he had scored on 33 minutes but Lukasz Fabianski pulled off a sublime save to tip his head around the post.

But the visitors were grateful to see the assistant referee Sian Massey correctly raise her flag for offside after Gayle nodded in at the other end.

Gayle wastefully dragged wide four minutes into the second half and Newcastle finally paid the price despite the best efforts of Karl Darlow.

Darlow produced heroics to keep out Ayew's first point-blank header with a fine reaction save but the Ghana forward was there to convert on the rebound.

Swansea's lead lasted just eight minutes, however, as Shelvey unlocked the visitors' defence with a wonderful ball over the top for Perez, whose fortuitously deflected cross fell into the path of Gayle's replacement Joselu to steer back across goal and beyond Fabianski.

Newcastle pressed for a winner without creating many chances to find to it, and Swansea would have stolen the points had Wilfried Bony not seen a goal-bound effort cleared with Darlow stranded, the draw making it just one defeat in four in all competitions for Carvalhal, a run that will provide little solace for the Portuguese given the team's predicament.

Newcastle Predicted XI: Manchester City (A) .
Newcastle face their toughest test of the season as they make the trip to the Etihad Stadium this weekend to face runaway leaders Manchester City in the Premier League. The Toon have been playing better lately but face a hugely difficult task against City, who have been superb throughout the course of the season so far. The sides met earlier in the season just after Christmas, when City edged a 1-0 victory at St James Park. It was a match in which Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez was criticised for his tactics. With it being so tight in the league, it’s important for Newcastle to start picking up points with so many teams still involved in the current relegation dogfight. The Magpies aren’t likely to secure a result there, but City head into the match off the back of a loss to Liverpool – their first in the Premier League this season. It’s time to predict the Newcastle team ahead of the weekend’s game against Manchester City.
