Pic Special: Aston Villa U21s 1 Newcastle U21s 2

On a mixed night at Villa Park, Newcastle's under-21 side recorded an impressive 2-1 victory against Gordon Cowans' Aston Villa but Alan Pardew saw two of his fringe players pick up injuries.

The manager was in the crowd as Adam Campbell and Mehdi Abeid scored the goals for Willie Donachie and Peter Beardsley's strong side, which included Xisco, James Tavernier and Romain Amalfitano.

But he cut a concerned figure as first Dan Gosling limped out of the action and then Haris Vuckic was stretchered off, with Pardew leaving his seat to come down to the dugout as the Slovenian left the field.

Also looking on from various angles was Club Reporter Dan King, who brings nufc.co.uk this exclusive photo gallery.
