The Ivorian played the first half before making way at the break following his move from Roma on loan but the Potters ended up winning 2-1.

Newcastle levelled things in the 21st minute despite being down to ten men because of Jamie Sterry’s red card in the 11th minute for a professional foul on Oliver Shenton. That allowed Dominic Telford to score from the spot for Stoke.

But Daniel Barlaser struck a penalty ten minutes later for the home side after Callum Roberts was brought down in the box.

Stoke made the extra man count after that, even though it was a close affair. With 13 minutes remaining Lewis Banks powered in a sweet winner.

Newcastle: Darlow; Sterry, Lascelles, Williams, Gibson, C Smith (L Smith 46), Barlaser, Longstaff, Laidler (Adu-Peprah 81), Roberts, Doumbia (McNall 46). Subs (not used): Smith, Gibson.
