Yes it was hard work, but I think the stats show Newcastle deserved more than just one point at Carrow Road.
Four points from six against Norwich and Wolves was probably what most Toon fans would have accepted before the games were played.
But full marks for effort.
63% possession - 20 shots - during last nights game against pre-season promotion favourites Norwich, is well worthy of three points.
