Newcastle have taken an important lead against Brentford after being awarded a penalty in the 61st minute.
Hickey knocked the ball back to Brentford goalkeeper Flekken, not realising that Gordon was behind him. The wing-back can’t stop him from getting to it, and the Brentford goalkeeper then trips the winger as he tries to clear it.
Callum Wilson who has been a major source of goals for Newcastle this season stepped up to take the penalty and fired in a powerful strike high into the top-right corner.
