Newcastle squash Tottenham

As the final whistle blew at White Hart Lane, jubilated Newcaste fans let out sighs of relief. Newcaste United triumphed over Tottenham 4-1 and had virtually secured safety from relegation.

Magpies steamroll Spurs

Daren Bent opened up the scoring for Tottenham in the 26th minute, heading the ball past Steve Harper. This was preceded by some very strong play by Newcastle, something that has been missing as of late. Nicky Butt equalised for Newcastle right before the half and Geremi put them up 2-1 after scoring from a free kick, off a foul by Jonathan Woodgate. Michael Owen scored his third goal in as many games in the 65th minute, off a nice flick by Viduka and Obafemi Martins scored Newcastle’s fourth goal late in the match.

This leaves Newcastle in 12th place with 35 points and Tottenham in 11th place with 39 points.
