First team stalwart fights for future: Three things learned about Newcastle v Crystal Palace
Darlow the unsung hero
One man who shone against the Eagles was Karl Darlow, who pulled off several impressive stops to deny a series of chances from a threatening Palace attack.
He will be feeling the pressure now Martin Dubravka has joined until the end of the season but really he could have done very little more to help his side to a point, including a good dive which nearly stopped the penalty.
His distribution might leave something to be desired but when his primary objective is to stop the ball going in the back of the net, the former Nottingham Forest man performed admirably.
