Newcastle U23s confirmed their qualification for the knockout stages of
the Premier League Cup with one group game to spare, after forcing a draw in South Wales on Monday
Trailing to a 56th minute strike from Botti Biabi, just four minutes of normal
time remained when Owen Bailey met Callum Smith's corner and headed home at
City's Landore training ground.
And a fine save in added time by substitute goalkeeper Otto Huuhtanen ensured
that the Magpies gained the point that guarantees a first or second
placed finish in their group, with one game left.
The group concludes on Monday February 26th, when Newcastle host Colchester
United while Swansea must travel to Burnley.
With some sides still to play three of their six games, many of the other 15
sides to qualify with Newcastle remain to be confirmed - definitely in there
already though are Derby County, Leicester City, Everton and Exeter City.
