A thrilling 2-2 draw between Newcastle and Leeds United was the result of a game that had everything from missed penalties to late drama and unpleasant supporter conduct.
Following a security breach during a Premier League match, a fan was detained and permanently banned.
Leeds took an early lead thanks to Luke Ayling, but Patrick Bamford missed a penalty kick to give them a chance to go up by two goals.
Newcastle quickly took advantage of the error and was given a penalty of their own, which Callum Wilson easily converted to tie the game.
More drama occurred in the second half as Wilson converted a second penalty to give Newcastle the lead before Kristensen equalized the score once more. Despite Leeds’ Junior Firpo receiving a red card in stoppage time, the game finished in a tie.
The incident in which Newcastle manager Eddie Howe was pushed in the chest by a supporter who ran onto the field during the second half, however, was the major talking point. Stewards and staff stepped in right away. The Daily Mail stated that the fan was later detained and given a lifetime ban.
However, the security breakdown has raised concerns about the safeguards in place at football games.
The outcome might be very important for both teams. While Newcastle will view it as two crucial points dropped as Liverpool closes in on them for the final Champions League position, Leeds will view it as a crucial point won in their fight to avoid relegation.
