Newcastle went to town against Blackpool at St James’ Park. Having already secured promotion to the Premier League one could have forgiven Chris Hughton’s side of taking their foot off the pedal but that was not to be the case.
Goals from Jonas Gutierrez, Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan and Wayne Routledge saw the Toon Army go four goals up against play-off hopefuls Blackpool. Veteran Brett Ormerod scored a consolation goal for the Seasiders late on.
The win takes the Magpies to within touching distance of the title as they opened up a six point lead over second placed West Brom with a game in hand.
