Dimitar Berbatov was through on the keeper, but Krul came out and made himself big forcing the striker to shoot straight at him.
Newcastle came back in the second half and started out well with Hatem Ben Arfa putting in a fantastic struck shot that also took a deflection. In the end Fulham’s attack was too much for Newcastle as Hugo Rodellega got the winner with a fine header off a free kick.
