Pre-season: Newcastle topple Atalanta in front of massive home crowd
The first of two home games at St James’ Park saw Newcastle United come away 1-0 winners on Friday night. Newcastle took the lead from a Chris Wood penalty and never looked back. Newcastle looked leggy towards the end, especially with Atalanta making changes. However, a good fitness test for the lads ended in a positive result.
