Ten-man Newcastle’s search for a first win of the season goes on after Eddie Howe’s side were held to a draw by fellow strugglers Norwich at St James’ Park.

Teemu Pukki’s magnificent volley into the top corner cancelled out Callum Wilson’s second-half penalty, which was awarded after Federico Fernandez’s header struck the raised arm of Billy Gilmour.

The Magpies had endured a nightmare start when Ciaran Clark was shown a ninth-minute red card for a professional foul on Norwich striker Pukki.

Howe’s team responded well to Clark’s dismissal – although Wilson’s spot-kick proved to be their only shot on target throughout the 90 minutes

Norwich’s best opportunity prior to Pukki’s equaliser fell to Josh Sargent, whose far-post shot was blocked by former Canaries player Jamal Lewis.

Pierre Lees-Melou almost capitalised on a Fabian Schar error in second-half stoppage time, but the Frenchman was denied by Martin Dubravka.

The point lifts Dean Smith’s side above Burnley into 18th place, while Newcastle remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

More to follow.
