Pic Special: Gillingham 0 Newcastle 1

 

Newcastle United are into the third round of the Capital One Cup following a 1-0 victory at Gillingham on Tuesday night.

An own goal from former Sunderland defender John Egan separated the sides at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium, and the Magpies were well worth their victory, despite the narrow scoreline, having looked lively on the front foot, creating a number of good openings.

Siem de Jong, Emmanuel Riviere, Rolando Aarons, Massadio Haidara, Remy Cabella and Fabricio Coloccini all threatened the League One side but it was the unfortunate Egan who found the back of the net midway through the first half, diverting Gabriel Obertan's cross in at the near post.

At the other end, Newcastle were rarely threatened, although goalkeeper Tim Krul made one excellent tip-over with time running out.

And manager Alan Pardew will be delighted with a professional performance from his side, which secured a safe passage through a tricky second round tie.
