Jamaal Lascelles, skipper Newcastle salvages his team when he equalized in injury time to keep their hopes alive of English Premier League survival and deny Aston Villa victory. Jammal took his side home with a header to snatch a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park just as it looked as Ollie Watkins’ 86th- minute effort which resulted in an own goal from Ciaran Clark.
Newcastle coach Steve Bruce has won only twice in 19 games in all competitions and sits 2 points clear of the drop zone with ten fixtures to play. He might have been left disheartened had Lascelles not intervened after the substitute Jacob Murphy hit the crossbar minutes earlier. Aston Villa remained ninth.
