A lot of Newcastle United fans are buzzing for their Under-23 side after they beat Sunderland 2-0 in the Tyne & Wear derby.
Neil Redfearn’s side took the lead through an early Luke Charman penalty before Brandon Taylor was sent off for the Black Cats – after he blocked the ball with his hand when Charman was clean through on goal.
In a season where the two rivals are two leagues apart, this is as close as both sets of fans will come to an actual Tyne & Wear derby, and to the delight of many Newcastle fans, it was the Toon who came out on top.
