An FA Cup third-round replay strike against Rochdale might not sound like much when you’re a £40m striker, but you only had to look at Joelinton’s face as he swept home Newcastle’s fourth and final goal on Tuesday night to see just what ending a 20-game goal drought meant to the Brazilian, who was the Magpies’ record-breaking purchase in the summer window.

AMID all the talk of transfer summits and targets, signing and sales, perhaps by the time the dust settles at the end of the month, the key moment of Newcastle United’s January window will have taken place on the pitch rather than in the boardroom.

“You could see everyone’s reaction the minute he scored,” said Magpies skipper Jamaal Lascelles, who had been taken off and replaced by youngster Thomas Allan by the time Joelinton scored.

Gradually, it was replaced by joy, an emotion that was shared by the team-mates who tore towards the St James’ Park dug-outs with him.

Matt coming back, who’s a key player for us, and myself and the big man getting the goal, it’s all encouraging stuff.

The current Newcastle squad is a closely-knit group, and just as they had supported Miguel Almiron as he acclimatised to life in the Premier League, so Joelinton’s colleagues have continued to back him to the hilt.

As well as discussing transfer plans with Mike Ashley, who ended his St James’ Park exile to watch his first Newcastle home game of the season on Tuesday, the Newcastle boss has also been welcoming a number of his injured players back into the fold this week.
