Gutierrez inspires Magpies triumph

Published Add your comment

Jonas Gutierrez fired Newcastle into the FA Cup fourth round as two moments of individual brilliance saw off Blackburn 2-1.

The Argentinian exchanged passes with striker Leon Best in the fifth minute of stoppage time before beating keeper Mark Bunn to snatch victory.

Rovers had taken a 35th-minute lead through David Goodwillie, but Hatem Ben Arfa got the Magpies back on track with a superb solo effort 20 minutes from time to set up a grandstand finish.
