Newcastle 2 City 2 - player ratings

Hart - Faultless for both goals, and had little else to do apart from pick the ball out of the net. 6

Richards - Looked good at right back, and preferable there than Ben Haim. Offers much going forward, but distribution could be better. 6

Dunne - A growing sense of disquiet over Dunne appears to be growing and it was a bad error for the goal. Not overly tested throughtout the night though. 5

Ben Haim - Steady if unspectacular. Does not look a long term answer in this position. 6

Garrido - Caught badly of out of position once but linked forward well. 6

Hamann - Neat and compact with a high passing percentage. Did his job well. 6

Kompany - Another solid performance and perhaps his best attacking display. 7

Ireland - Man of the match for me, and really offering a goal threat. Looks to have found his true position. 8

Wright-Phillips - Lively down the right hand side, but shooting could have been better. 6

Robinho - Commentators were critical but won (and scored) the penalty and provided the ball for Ireland's goal. Continued to work hard. 7

Jo - An off night for me. Failed to link with the midfield as well as he could have done and our spread of goals in the team is covering his own failings. 5

Subs:

Onuoha - Good to see him back, but looked rusty and caught a couple of times. 5

Evans - Created an impression and put himself about but no real chances. 6
