Newcastle's winless run extended to 14 games in their draw against NorwichThere were fears they could lose after Ciaran Clark's early sending off Newcastle showed some resiliency however and walked away with a pointLes Ferdinand said there were positives to come despite the disappointment 

Newcastle fans hoped their game against Norwich would be the game that turned their season around.

However, they were held to a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park leaving them now winless in their opening 14 games of the season.

There were fears the result could have been worse for Eddie Howe’s side, after Ciaran Clark’s ninth minute red card left them with an uphill challenge to take anything from the game.

Les Ferdinand found some positives to take though saying they ‘dug in’ following an early red card

Former Newcastle striker Les Ferdinand though there were positives with Newcastle’s display on Tuesday evening, as they battled hard to walk away with a point.

He said on Amazon Prime after the game: ‘What Howe would look at (following the red card)  was resilience for rest of the game to keep shape and discipline.

‘Sometimes when you’re there at the bottom of the table and something like that happens you can slump your shoulders again and go “how are we going to win this” and “no one expects us to win” but they dug in.’

His co-pundit Enu Aluko also said the players showed resilience following Clark’s red card.

When asked if she thought the result would galvanise the squad, she responded: ‘Not sure about galvanise but what Newcastle players and manager will say is they didn’t lose the game. 

‘They got a good draw against Brentford, they’re not losing games though they’re still making errors. 

‘Ciaran Clark didn’t help his team, (Martin) Dubravka made a mistake for the goal but not losing games they’re still in it.

‘Massive game at the weekend against Burnley that will give them the platform to go on. That will give them massive confidence I think. 

‘They had resilience, Joelinton worked his socks off, players working for the badge.’

The result means Howe is still searching for his victory since he replaced Steve Bruce this month.

After missing the 3-3 draw with Brentford due to a positive Covid-19 test, he has since seen his side lose to Arsenal and draw with Norwich. 

If results go against them during the week they could be as much as eight points off safety by the time they play Burnley on Saturday.
