Newcastle's interest in the Premier League Cup came to an end in South West London on Friday, beaten by Fulham in their last 16 tie at Motspur Park.

Elliot Dickman's side fell behind on nine minutes when Idris Odutayo headed Sonny Hiltonís left wing free kick on to the crossbar; Kieron Bowie converting the rebound from point blank range.

Clad in their blue change kit, Newcastle came more into the tie after the break but without seriously testing Cottagers custodian Alex Borto.

Having done the double over United en route to winning the PL2 Division Two title last week, Fulham sealed their progress to the Quarter Finals of this competition in the 90th minute.

Breaking up a visiting attack, the hosts headed downfield and striker Jay Stansfield ran from the halfway line before rifling a shot home for his third goal against United in as many games this season.

Chasing a league and cup double after wrapping up the PL2 title, the hosts won 6-1 on Tyneside in PL2 last week - inflicting a 1-3 defeat on Newcastle at Motspur Park back in September.


With a Northumberland Senior Cup Final looming against Blyth Spartans, the U23s now have eight PL2 games left to try and hold on to a promotion playoff place.
