Lascelles nets Toon winner for second weekend in row

Newcastle United 2 Stoke City 1

By Damian Spellman

Jamaal Lascelles has brushed off his hero status after heading Newcastle to victory for the second time in a week.

The 23-year-old Magpies skipper, who scored the only goal at Swansea last Sunday, repeated the dose on Saturday to secure a 2-1 win over Stoke at St James' Park, in the process clinching a third successive top-flight success for the first time since November 2014.

As the final whistle sounded, Rafael Benitez's promoted side sat in fourth place in the Premier League table a day short of 20 years since the evening - still remembered in vivid detail on Tyneside - when they beat Barcelona 3-2 in the Champions League.

Lascelles said: "It just goes to show how much character we have. A couple of seasons back, we'd go a goal down or concede a goal and heads would drop. We'd be looking at each other like, 'Who's going to step up?'

"But everyone steps up, the 11 of us. This group is excellent - we just keep going. We work hard for each other on the pitch."
