Shola Ameobi penalty enough to see Magpies into last 16.
It wasn’t pretty, but Newcastle have seen off a resolute Meatlist side and are now safely into the next round of the Europa League.
In a rather uneventful game, the turning point was the dubious penalty decision awarded to Newcastle mid-way through the second half.
Moussa Sissoko was brought down inside the area by the Metalist goalkeeper, although it does look like the midfielder went down rather easily.
Shola Ameobi calmly stepped up and applied the finish as Newcastle continue their good run in Europe at the expense of their current standing in the Premier League.
