Newcastle United appeared to be heading for a shock defeat at Ashton Gate as they found themselves two down by half-time. Chris Hughton must have given his St James’ Park outfit one hell of a team talk as they came out for the second period ready for a fight.
Goals from Lewis Nyatanga and Nicky Maynard put Bristol City two goals up just before the break but Newcastle United scored twice in the space of five minutes through Jonas Gutierrez and Andy Carroll, again, to level things.
The draw keeps Newcastle United two points clear at the top of the Championship table with a crucial game in hand.
