It was an evening which could not have gone much better for Newcastle United and head coach Steve Bruce.

With one loan swoop, it's seemingly gone from an area of weakness to a position of strength.

Competition on the left flank is something United have seriously lacked in recent seasons.

Joelinton ended his 20-game goal drought with his first competitive strike at St James' Park, with youngster Tom Allan grabbing an assist on his United debut.

Three minutes later, Ritchie recorded his second assist of the night.

It's a welcome headache for Bruce after the festive injury crisis, and Ritchie's return suggests it's a dilemma which will come to a head sooner rather than later.

The Magpies confidently dispatched Rochdale in their third-round replay just 10 days after clinging on for the draw at Spotland.
