Newcastle remain mired in the battle for survival after a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Sunday night.
At Selhurst Park, Rafael Benitez’s side took a first-half lead through Mohamed Diame, but a Luka Milivojevic penalty soon after the interval forced Newcastle to settle for a point.
The Magpies are only one point above the relegation zone in 16th place after failing to win for a fourth consecutive league match.
Palace, without a win in their last three league games, are two points ahead of Newcastle.
The visitors had gone in front in the 22nd minute.
Kenedy swung a low delivery into the penalty area that Milivojevic missed and when Martin Kelly failed to track Diame’s run, the Senegal midfielder was free to finish from close range.
But Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark conceded a 55th-minute penalty when he bundled over Christian Benteke after the striker leaped to reach Wilfried Zaha’s cross.
Serbian midfielder Milivojevic sent his spot-kick towards the bottom corner and although Karl Darlow got a hand to the ball, he was unable to prevent it reaching the back of the net.
Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey was fortunate not to concede another penalty for a blatant tug on James McArthur’s shirt as the Magpies held on.
