Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern have got big smiles on their faces after their latest win last night.
After seeing Brighton go top of the league the evening before with a win of their own, the Magpies knew they needed to respond and respond they did.
Indeed, despite Keith Stroud mucking up a disallowed penalty call, the men from the north east still emerged victorious over Burton Albion in front of their own fans.
And it was Matt Ritchie who was on the score-sheet once again – his 15th of the campaign – seeing him notch this impressive stat via Mark Douglas on Twitter:

Certainly, then, Ritchie has been in good form this season and with Nolan enjoying a good spell on Tyneside, the former Bournemouth man will be keen to emulate those statistics should the club make the Premier League this season.
