Rafa Benitez has been speaking about Newcastle United's dramatic 4-3 win over Norwich City.

Dwight Gayle scored the club's winner SIX minutes into injury time at St James's Park last night.

The result saw United move up to third place in the Championship.

And Newcastle manager Benitez has been speaking about Gayle's stunning hat-trick.

Benitez also spoke about his "pride" after watching his team's late, late comeback.

The result prompted Norwich manager Alex Neil to label St James's Park a "strange place".

Footage of the game is available here.

Meanwhile, United have been handed a huge 5,600-seat allocation for the club's visit to Preston North End on October 29.
