Newcastle United are currently drawing 1-1 at half-time against Atromitos in the first leg of their Europa League qualifier in Greece.

Both sides were happy to enjoy spells of possession during the opening stages without creating many chances.

As the hosts started to control the game, Magpies youngster James Tavernier endured a difficult time at left-back thanks to the attacking play of Denis Epstein.

The winger eventually broke the deadlock with 26 minutes on the clock when he beat goalkeeper Steve Harper with a calm finish following a ball over the top.

Despite looking toothless in front of goal, Newcastle grabbed an equaliser with the last kick of the half thanks to Ryan Taylor's free kick.
