United's new U23 coach Elliott Dickman was at Whitley Park on Friday evening as his new side twice took the lead, but were unable to withstand City's attacking instincts.

The Canaries arrived on Tyneside having scored at least three goals in each of their away games this season - including a 4-3 success against the mackems who at that time were overseen by Dickman.

Newcastle led at the break after their best move of the half saw them break out of defence on 25 minutes; Dylan Stephenson teeing up Jay Turner-Cooke to net with a low curler that went in off the far post.

Norwich were happier in possession and more dangerous in attack, but failed to press home their advantage for an hour, until an awful back pass fell to Jon Rowe. He advanced before releasing strike partner Tom Dickson-Peters, who poked the ball under the advancing Dan Langley.

Parity was regained for just four minutes though, before United's Josh Scott was sent tumbling in the area by Flynn Clarke; Jack Young sending Dylan Berry the wrong way from the penalty spot.

Substitute Clarke made up for conceding the penalty by hitting a superb free-kick that beat Langley all ends up in the 78th minute, levelling the scores at 2-2.

And with striker Shae Hutchinson coming off the bench, the visitors pressed for a winner, with Langley doing well to deny Rowe after he burst into the box.

Restored to a central striking role after starting on the right wing, top scorer Dylan Stephenson lobbed the 'keeper in the second minute of added time but the ball rebounded back off the crossbar and Turner-Cooke couldn't apply the finish.

Had that gone in though, it would have meant a fortunate three points for Dickman to get off the mark with; City full value for the draw and livelier going forward. It's fair to say the new man has some work to do.
