Derby   3 - 0   Newcastle

Derby 3-0 Newcastle

Derby 3-0 Newcastle

Derby eased their relegation fears with an emphatic win over Newcastle that saw the Magpies deposed by West Brom at the Championship summit.

Rob Hulse headed home powerfully from a Kris Commons centre just before the break to put the Rams ahead.

Commons then drilled in a penalty after Newcastle midfielder Jonas Gutierrez brought down Michael Tonge.

And when Hulse fed Shaun Barker, the defender fired in to end Newcastle's 15-game unbeaten league run.

The Magpies' first defeat for four months not only draws a line under their best sequence of results for 60 years but also sees them overtaken by title rivals West Brom.

The Baggies edged ahead on goal difference after a 2-0 home win against Scunthorpe.

Derby took a deserved lead when Hulse rose unmarked inside the six-yard box to head home Commons' pinpoint cross.

Newcastle responded by creating two good chances in the space of as many minutes before the break.

Kevin Nolan's through-ball sent Wayne Routledge clear, but the midfielder's driven shot was blocked by Stephen Bywater.

The Derby keeper then pushed a Nolan volley behind at his near post.

Having held firm, the Rams went ahead in the 59th minute when Stephen Pearson's through-ball sent Tonge clear.

Gutierrez bundled over the on-loan Stoke midfielder, and Commons coolly sent Harper the wrong way from the spot.

Newcastle's misery was completed four minutes later when their failure to clear a corner saw the ball lifted back into the area, allowing Barker to turn in from six yards.


Derby manager Nigel Clough:
"The score might flatter us a little but anyone who has seen us for the last few weeks would say a result like that has been coming.

"It's reward for all the hard work in the last few weeks.

"The first 15-20 minutes were as well as we've played since I've been here. Stephen Bywater hardly touched the ball."

Newcastle manager Chris Hughton:

"It's a very hurt changing room. The manner of the defeat has hurt them and I'm quite sure there'll be a desire to turn this around.

"It's certainly a big blow. We've done something that we haven't done all season and that's concede three goals.

"It's a hurt changing room because our strength this season is that we've been solid and had a good defensive record."
