Newcastle United edged another step closer to promotion with a much more comfortable 1-0 win than the scoreline suggested.
But how did the players, and more importantly the referee, rate in the encounter? Here is our take on the game...
Karl Darlow - One outstanding save to deny an equaliser. Solid performance, despite taking a few hard knocks... 7
Vurnon Anita - Rarely tested. Had a pretty comfortable night on the right-hand side of the back four... 6
Jamaal Lascelles - Won everything in the air. Much more solid than the weekend... 7
Chancel Mbemba - A very good return to the XI. Read the game very well... 7
Paul Dummett - Was a real outlet down the left... 6
Jonjo Shelvey - Controlled things early on, given loads of space. Influence waned as game wore on... 7
Mo Diame - Looks better further back. No doubt at all about that... 6
Christian Atsu - Not one of his better days, although did link up with Dummett well early on... 6
Ayoze Perez - Full or running and craft. Should have scored in the second-half... 7
Matt Ritchie - Outstanding again. Performance deserved the two goals but only rewarded with one right-footed cracker... 8
Dwight Gayle - Was supposed to have committed an imaginary foul on the edge of the area for penalty. Aye, right... 7
Sammy Ameobi (for Atsu 89)... N/A
Daryl Murphy (for Gayle 90)... N/A
