Newcastle   0 - 0   Bristol City

Newcastle 0-0 Bristol City

Newcastle 0-0 Bristol City

Bristol City goalkeeper Dean Gerken denied top-of-the table Newcastle victory with a series of superb saves.

Marlon Harewood fired against the post early on for the home side after Peter Lovenkrands had sent him clear.

Gerken, only playing after Adriano Basso was injured in the warm-up, kept out Danny Guthrie's volley then turned away Kevin Nolan's header.

Newcastle were dominant but Steven Taylor and Nolan both headed against the bar and City held out for a point.

The Magpies remain at the top of the Championship as second-placed West Brom also drew.

City did have chances too, with Cole Skuse's half-volley deflected over and Taylor mopping up in front of an unguarded Newcastle net after Zurab Khizanishvili's woefully short back-pass allowed Lee Johnson to beat Steve Harper to the ball.

But Newcastle will see this as a missed opportunity to extend their lead at the top, given the number of chances they created and wasted.

The Magpies' frustrating afternoon was completed when referee Graham Salisbury waved away Harewood's claims for a penalty after he was brought down by Jamie McCombe before the end.


Newcastle caretaker manager Chris Hughton: "For me, it was an absolute certain penalty.

"There are some penalties where you are not sure whether the referee is going to give it or not.

"I could have almost looked away because my first impression was just one of waiting for the referee to point to the spot."

Bristol City manager Gary Johnson: "I must admit, my heart was in my mouth at the time.

"The lads felt there was a bit of contact but from our point of view, maybe he was starting to go down early.

"But referee Salisbury was very brave with forty-odd thousand people screaming for a penalty."
