The full-time review - Miles Starforth

Tim Krul has certainly had tougher afternoon's at St James's Park. Newcastle, again, just didn't look like scoring, and by the end they were hanging on. Norwich left the pitch wondering just how they hadn't scored. There's a lot that needs working on, but Bruce desperately needs Carrol, Gayle and Muto back fit.
