Three excellent second-half goals from Newcastle gave them an unexpected win over Portsmouth. Fratton Park is not the easiest place to go, but Newcastle turned up and were determined to give it a go.
Goals from birthday boy Michael Owen, Obafemi Martins, and a last minute strike from Danny Guthrie made sure of all three points. Make no mistake, had Portsmouth been more clinical infront of goal, this may have been a different result. But all credit to the lads in black and white shirts, a thoroughly deserved victory.
The win moves the Toon up to the dizzy heights of fourteenth place. We leapfrog Man City, West Ham and Tottenham (who we play next Sunday).
