As it was, the hosts settled for goals from Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez in the space of six minutes at the outset of the second half to secure a routine victory which would have been sealed by a far more handsome margin had it not been for a combination of the woodwork, and the excellence of Town keeper Jonas Lossl.

Thankfully, with the arrival of £20m Miguel Almiron finally eclipsing the £16m they paid Real Madrid for Michael Owen in 2005, the early signs are they've unearthed a diamond. Having had Tommy Smith sent off for a risky tackle on Almiron after 20 minutes, the visitors were on the back foot for the majority of the game.

Newcastle have been able to get results under Rafael Benitez, but this was the best their attack has looked all season and new boy Almiron was the key. All eyes were on the Paraguayan and he didn't disappoint, showing good movement, an eye for a pass and great speed.

However, they made amends 59 seconds into the second half thanks to Rondon, who beat Lossl from eight yards. This game suited his attacking tendencies and he made the most of it.

Rondon was denied by the brilliant Lossl and the Terriers' task was made harder when Smith rightly saw red for a rash diving tackle on Almiron. He was off the ground and caught the Newcastle man and referee Kevin Friend rightly sends him on his way.

Sean Longstaff is in line for a maiden call-up to the England Under-21 squad after boss Aidy Boothroyd watched Newcastle's 2-0 win over Huddersfield.

Lossl produced a remarkable reaction save to turn substitute Kenedy's stinging volley on to the crossbar, and he needed the help of an upright to keep out Longstaff's curling 76th-minute attempt.

Lossl sprung to his right to keep out a low Almiron strike, but nearly gifted him a goal as a tame effort squrimed under the Dane and had to be cleared by Chris Lowe.
