Chris Wood sent warning about Newcastle United future

Newcastle United have had a problem up top this season. Callum Wilson has been out since December after picking up an injury but somehow he is still the club’s top scorer of the campaign till now.

Bruno Guimaraes and Chris Wood score first Newcastle goals to keep survival bid on track

As match-winning finishes go, it could hardly have been more sublime. Newcastle United left back Matt Targett lobbed over a corner from the right. At the back post, big Dan Burn headed across the six yards box into a crowded Southampton penalty area towards Bruno Guimaraes. A goal seemed improbable, not least since Guimaraes had his back to goal. The Brazilian twisted in mid-air to flick the ball beyond a startled Fraser Forster, right in front of the travelling hoardes. The £40 million transfer window acquisition had a glorious first goal for his new club, who now find themselves 10 points clear of the relegation places.
