Trio on target in Magpies’ victory

Date published: Saturday 20th February 2010 5:52

Newcastle opened the scoring on three minutes after Peter Lovenkrands cross from the left-hand side of the box looped over Preston keeper Andy Lonergan and into the top corner.

North End nearly levelled on 16 minutes when Jon Parkin hit a rasping strike from close range that Steve Harper fended away.

In the dying seconds of the half Parkin’s volley flew inches wide, while United’s Andy Carroll forced Lonergan into a save early in the second half after a turn and shot.

Newcastle extended their lead just before the hour when Kevin Nolan exchanged passes in the box with Alan Smith and side-footed past Lonergan.

In stoppage time Ryan Taylor lashed home from six yards following Fabrice Pancrate’s cross.
