Newcastle news boy Harvey Barnes nearly punished Jan Paul van Hecke for a misplaced pass as he sprinted at goal with Callum Wilson and Jacob Murphy in support, but a vital touch from Joel Veltman took the ball away from the former Leicester City man and his scuffed effort was easily gathered by Bart Verbruggen.
Buonanotte’s claims for a penalty were waved away just after Pervis Estupinan had smashed wide on the half volley to bring an end to an entertaining, but goalless, first 45 minutes
Welbeck had his second goal of the Summer Series just after the restart though, after Mitoma got to the byline and pulled it back for the striker to tap home.
Buonanotte saw his low effort well saved by Nick Pope after Mitoma had countered from a Newcastle corner, before we brought on a number of substitutions.
Those changes impacted our rhythm and it would see Newcastle take control of proceedings.
Verbruggen pulled off an almightily impressive save to deny EAnderson from close range, somehow getting an outstretched glove to tip the Newcastle man’s effort wide.
But Anderson would get the better of the Dutchman as he capitalised on a defensive mix-up to tuck home before he showed a clinical edge in the second minute of added time to secure a 2-1 victory for his team.
Albion line-up: Verbruggen, Gross (Weir 62), Veltman (Turns 59), van Hecke (Lamptey 80), Estupinan Samuels 62), Caicedo (Ayari 59), Dahoud (Gilmour 71), Buonanotte (Peupion 58), Lallana (Ferguson 59), Mitoma (Adingra 62), Welbeck (Pedro 71).
