Newcastle on the rise

Sunday Tribune - - SPORT - Yes­ter­day: See Results P29 Crys­tal (late kick-off) To­day:

A LATE strike from Jose Hole­bas earned Watford a 1-1 draw at Southamp­ton yes­ter­day and extended the home side’s win­less run to eight Premier League games.

Manolo Gab­bia­dini gave the Saints the lead in the 20th minute. Hole­bas’ equaliser left the Saints one place above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

Salomon Rondon net­ted a brace for Newcastle United as they claimed con­sec­u­tive wins in the Premier League for the first time since April to move a point clear of the bot­tom three with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Hud­der­s­field Town missed a chance to climb out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone when they were held to a 1-1 home draw by West Ham United.

The re­sult left Hud­der­s­field in 19th po­si­tion on seven points from 12 games, one be­hind Cardiff City and 17th-placed Crys­tal Palace, who were at home to Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur in the day’s late fix­ture.

Leicester City shared a 0-0 draw with Burnley at the King Power sta­dium when foot­ball was over­shad­owed by emo­tional trib­utes to the club’s late owner Vichai Sri­vad­dhanaprabha.

Thou­sands of sup­port­ers walked to the sta­dium from the city cen­tre be­fore the game, which was pre­ceded by two min­utes’ si­lence for the Thai bil­lion­aire. Vichai died in a he­li­copter match be­fore City’s last home match two weeks ago. | Reuters
