Pic Special: Sheff Wed 0 Newcastle 1

Ayoze Perez's second half strike handed Newcastle United a 1-0 pre-season friendly victory away at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night.

The young Spaniard, signed from Tenerife in the summer, put the finishing touch on a rapid Magpies counter-attack just past the hour mark at Hillsborough, as Alan Pardew's side recorded their third successive victory in eight days.

The result was harsh on the Owls, however, who applied plenty of pressure - particularly in the first half - but were unable to take the chances they created.

Gary Madine, Chris Maguire, Giles Coke, Atdhe Nuhiu and Sam Hutchinson were all guilty of spurning decent opportunities and Perez made them pay midway through the second period.

United went from one end of the pitch to the other in seconds - goalkeeper Rob Elliot's long throw finding Gabriel Obertan, who played in Perez for a clinical finish.

And Wednesday substitute Franck Betra missed a late sitter as Newcastle kept another clean sheet, just 48 hours after returning from their pre-season tour of New Zealand.
