Reserve team coach Tommy Craig has spoken about his ‘disappointed’ with his team’s performance Tuesday night. Newcastle lost 2-0 to Birmingham City at St Andrews.

Craig told Newcastle World TV: ‘We started the first 20 minutes on the back foot, they were the better team at that point. They got the goal to go in front, but then for the next 25 minutes we started to get at them. We got territory, we played in their half and we created a golden opportunity for Marc Walton that we didn’t put away.’

Continuing: ‘I felt as half time approached we could get back into the game, but they scored in the last few seconds half the first half and that put a different complexion on the game, an untrue complexion perhaps. We had a go at them in the second half, but we squandered three or four good chances.’

But ultimately, it appears he wasn’t satisfied with the performance: ‘Overall I was disappointed with the display’.
