7th November 2006- League Cup Fourth Round, Watford 2 Newcastle United 2 (After Extra Time, Newcastle won 5-4 on penalties)

Newcastle keeper Steve Harper eased the pressure on under-fire boss Glenn Roeder with a crucial save in the penalty shoot-out win at Watford.

The hero last night was the stand-in goalkeeper Steve Harper, who saved from Watford’s left-back, Jordan Stewart, after James Milner and Ashley Young had earlier missed in the shoot-out. Yet Newcastle were within four minutes of being eliminated as they trailed in extra-time before the captain Scott Parker’s late equaliser ensured there would be penalties.

And your one-word match report is: Slapdash.

In When Saturday Comes Oxford United fan Martin Brodetsky described this game as his worst moment supporting The U’s.
