The Magpies threatened soon after when Papiss Cisse's fierce strike was palmed away by the keeper and Luuk de Jong followed up to head the rebound over.

Cisse then came close when his low strike was beaten away by Julian Speroni, before Yoan Gouffran saw his own attempt saved.

The visitors were looking dangerous on the break and Yannick Bolasie worked himself some room just inside the box, before firing a strike narrowly over the crossbar.
