  • Newcastle flies back to top of table

    A Yoann Gouffran strike and an Henri Lansbury own goal propelled Newcastle back to the top of the Championship and a step closer to an immediate return to the Premier League in a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday. Rafael Benitez's Magpies are embroiled with Brighton in a thrilling ding dong battle for supremacy in the second tier Championship and victory over another of the sides that went down with them from the Premier League last season saw Newcastle move a point ahead of the 'Seagulls'. Defeat for Villa, though, left them dangerously close to the relegation places -- just six points above the bottom three -- not something Chinese owner Tony Xia had in mind when he bought the club and subsequently brought in the experienced Steve Bruce after Roberto di Matteo failed to galvanise them in the early stages of the season.
