Newcastle vs West Brom result: Miguel Almiron scores fastest goal of season as hosts beat struggling Baggies

Phillips tried again from long-range in the 37th minute with the same result, then Karlan Grant sprung the Magpies’ offside trap but his low cross was dealt with well by Emile Krafth.

The visitors had their best chance just before the break when a Phillips cross was half-cleared and fell to Conor Gallagher, who poked wide when he really should have hit the target from 12 yards.

West Brom came out firing at the start of the second half and were level within five minutes when Furlong met Phillips’ cross from the left with a blazing low drive past Karl Darlow.

As Newcastle began to suffer from their time off the training ground, confidence surged through the Baggies who had further chances through Gallagher and Charlie Austin, both of whom drew saves out of the increasingly busy Darlow.

West Brom had the busy Phillips to thank in the 72nd minute for a brilliant intervention to head an effort from Gayle off the line with Johnstone beaten.

Gayle had injected much-needed urgency into the Newcastle front line and he made no mistake with his second chance eight minutes from time, heading home a brilliant cross from fellow substitute Jacob Murphy.
