Newcastle United were left frustrated as they were forced to settle for a point against Fulham on Saturday evening, as both teams played out a 1-1 draw at St. James’ Park. 

The Magpies fell behind on the night though, as Tosin Adarabioyo’s header rebounded off the face of Newcastle midfielder Matt Ritchie to see the visitors take the lead.

The game’s turning point came just after the hour mark though, as Joachim Andersen was shown his marching orders for a foul on Callum Wilson in the penalty area.

Wilson stepped up and scored from the spot as he netted his eighth goal of the season for his new club since signing from Championship side AFC Bournemouth in the summer transfer window.

He’ll be hoping he can continue to score goals to keep Steve Bruce’s side clear of the relegation zone, with the Magpies 12th in the top flight following the game.

However, one player that continues to be singled out by some sections of Newcastle United supporters is Joelinton, with the forward failing to hit the back of the net against Fulham, as the points were shared on the night.

The 24-year-old has scored three goals in 15 appearances for Newcastle in all competitions this season, and came in for criticism from some of the St. James’ Park faithful on Saturday evening.

Take a look at how some supporters reacted to Joelinton’s performance against Fulham on Twitter below…

Despite some fans defending Joelinton, it still appears to be the case that supporters are not fully behind their striker.
