A Magpies side boasting Karl Darlow, Jamaal Lascelles and Seydou Doumbia lost
at Gallowgate on Monday night after playing for most of the game a man
The biggest home reserve crowd since 2012 saw United fall behind on 11
minutes, when Jamie Sterry fouled Oliver Shenton in the box at the Leazes End.
Referee Andrew Miller gave a penalty and dismissed the defender for denying a
goalscoring opportunity, Dominic Telford stepping up to shoot under Darlow.
City came close to a second soon after when
Sergio Molina Beloqui's 25-yard effort struck a post, before United levelled
from the spot on 21 minutes.
Eddy Lecygne barged over Callum Roberts and Dan Barlaser beat 'keeper Daniel
Gyollai from 12 yards to register his second goal of the campaign.
Stoke continued to make their man advantage count, Darlow denying Telford a
second goal in the 28th minute. Telford then turned provider in the last
minute of the half, but George Waring headed just wide.
Doumbia was replaced by Lewis McNall at the interval, failing to make any
impression in his first game since signing off for CSKA Moscow on December
Liam Gibson blocked a Waring header with his head in the 68th minute and the Potters remained in the ascendancy and began to dominate possession, with Darlow doing well to deny Liam Edwards
with a magnificent one-handed save.
Darlow made two more good stops but
Stoke's pressure finally brought dividends in the form of a 77th minute wonder strike
from full back Lewis Banks that flew high into the net from the angle of the box.
United were unable to respond to that and Stoke completed a league double over
them, but Peter Beardsley's side still gave a reasonable performance - albeit
undermined by their numerical deficiency.

Remy Cabella grabbed his fourth Ligue 1 goal of the season on Sunday to
bring Olympique Marseille level at home to Paris Saint Germain.
The 25 year-old struck a low effort from outside the box that eluded 'keeper
Kevin Trapp. However the league leaders retook the lead after the break and
recorded a 2-1 victory in the South of France.

U18s returned to home action for the first time in 2016 on Saturday - and
ended up on the wrong end of their heaviest defeat in seventeen seasons of
Premier Youth League participation.
Just seven minutes were on the clock at a damp Little Benton when United defender Owen Bailey tripped
visiting striker Shayne Lavery outside the box and received a straight red card.
And from the resultant free kick, Anthony Evans curled a right footed effort
over the wall and into the corner of Ben Smith's goal to put the Toffees
Inevitably the visitors pressed on in search of further goals and after
missing numerous chances, doubling their lead in the 43rd minute when Evans
turned provider for Lavery to lob the advancing Smith.
The visitors went goal crazy after the break. Spencer Myers made it 0-3
after 63 minutes from close range and the fourth followed two minutes later
when Lavery grabbed his second.
Morgan Feeney got the fifth in the 76th minute from a corner and Lavery
completed his hat-trick by firing home via a post in the 83rd minute.
Evans swept the ball in with four minutes remaining and the scoring was rounded off in added time when Evans
completed his treble to make it 0-8.
There's not much respite for Dave Watson's lads though, hosting league leaders

Born Or Died:
Benson born, Whitehaven.
A 0-3 defeat
at Liverpool in March 1903 proved to be the sole senior appearance right back
Bob Benson made for United.
A miner acquired from local side
Dunston Villa, Shankhouse and Swalwell, Bob moved on to non-league
Southampton for £150.
Switching to Sheffield United in 1904 saw his career take off and he was capped
by England in February 1913
November 1913 saw Bob join Woolwich
Arsenal, working in a munitions factory during WW1 and hanging up his boots.
However, he was tempted into a playing return with fatal consequences,
appearing for Arsenal in a friendly against Reading just days after his 33rd
birthday - despite having gone to the game as a spectator.
Leaving the field after complaining of feeling unwell, Benson died in the
dressing room a short time later, the cause being established as a burst blood
5,000 fans attended a testimonial match some three months later against
a Rest of London XI, with the proceeds going to Bob's widow.
1934 Death of Henry Brown, 50.
"Harry" scored a hat-trick on his debut against Birmingham and won a
Championship medal in his one and only season with United.
At the time of his death he was living in the Southampton area, having played
for the Saints just before WW1, after earlier moves took him from SJP to
Bradford PA and Fulham.
Death of Arthur Metcalfe, 46.
Forward who swapped SJP for Liverpool just before WW1.
Arthur settled on Merseyside and was an Anfield gateman at the time of
Death of Charles William Spencer, 53.
An FA Cup & Championship winner at United, Charlie won two England caps
while at SJP.
Sold to Manchester United, he later managed Wigan Athletic, Grimsby Town
and York City.
However, he passed away at his Blackpool home within three months of taking
at Bootham Crescent.

Robert celebrates his Saints strike
We started this game eight points behind leaders Arsenal and five points
behind Man United with a game in hand on both. Thierry Henry gave the Gunners a half-time lead but United
deservedly equalised through the right boot of Robert.
Unfortunately, the crowd and the
watching Sky audience were robbed of a fantastic final 30 minutes when
Robert was sent off for two bookings - the second for not retreating
from a free-kick, although Bergkamp took full advantage of the

United temporarily surrendered the top spot that they'd held since October
after a wretched evening at Pride Park - West Bromwich Albion's 2-0 home
victory over Scunthorpe United put them ahead on goal difference.
It was another poor return from the Midlands to go with our 0-0 draw at
Leicester and the 0-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest but United could have few
complaints as they were battered by the Rams.
The 15-game unbeaten league record looked in doubt once Rob Hulse headed the
Rams in front - soon after Robbie
Savage avoided dismissal for clattering Wayne Routledge.
Referee Anthony Taylor then disallowed an effort from Andy Carroll straight
from the restart for an earlier free kick to United. However he called a foul by Jonas Gutierrez on Michael Tonge correctly and Kris Commons beat Steve Harper from the spot.
Barker then fired in a third to spark further celebrations from Nigel Clough - and

With time running out however, Bale benefited from Steven Taylor's hesitancy and Fabricio Coloccini's
inadequate challenge to hit a left-footed shot that
