Reserves Beat Magpies

Second in the league Newcastle took the lead after just three minutes but a Mustappha Hadji penalty four minutes later and further goals from Luke Moore and Peter Hynes saw Villa go eleven points clear at the top of the Reserves table.

Villa's win was marred by the sending off of midfielder Mark Kinsella who was dismissed after a tussle with Andy Griffin, the Magpies player also seeing red, 20 minutes into the second half.
