Magpies record friendly win against Hull City
Newcastle United recorded a 2-0 friendly victory over Hull City at St. James' Park on Saturday as they continued their preparations for the resumption of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Goals from Florian Lejeune and Allan Saint-Maximin gave Steve Bruce's side their second victory over Championship opposition in just four days following Tuesday's 3-2 win against Middlesbrough at the Magpies' training ground in Benton.
Lejeune opened the scoring in the first half, heading home Jonjo Shelvey's accurate cross from a free-kick.
And Saint-Maximin doubled the lead just before the break, picking up a loose ball in the box and side-footing it beyond Tigers goalkeeper George Long.
The Magpies return to Premier League action against Sheffield United at St. James' Park on Sunday 21st June (kick-off 2pm BST).
While supporters will not be able to attend, the match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
