Here's how Twitter reacted to the frontman’s second goal for the Magpies.

@ThisDave – “Big changes from our preferred 11, did the job without much fuss. Yes there was an own goal and yes they gifted us one, but we took the chances. Hopefully Almiron and Goalinton carry some confidence into the league... #LETSGETCARRIEDAWAY.”

@DeanDodds2 – “BTW I have missed Matt Ritchie!!! As much as I like Williems...”

@ToxicoHD – “Solid win for #NUFC great to see Miggy bag another and Joelinton get a goal, hopefully it eases a bit of pressure on him. Great to see Ritchie back, he's been missed on the wings.”

@nufcdavid – “So happy for Joelinton. Hopefully now he has gotten a goal it will help him get more. The fans need to start getting behind him.”
