Newcastle battle back to draw at West Brom

Ben Foster

Managerless West Brom conceded a two-goal lead to miss out on the chance of a first league win since August as Newcastle ended a run of four straight defeats.

Jonny Evans' own goal saw Rafael Benitez's side draw level after Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field had put the home side into the lead.

Newcastle improved after Ciaran Clark quickly pulled one back, with Salomon Rondon diverting a corner onto the unlucky Evans and into the net for the leveller.

The point means West Brom, under caretaker Gary Megson, move up to 16th while Newcastle go 12th.
