Defender makes comeback from injury as Magies beat Reading for first PL2 win in eight matches

Newcastle United ended a seven-match winless Division 2 run in emphatic style with a 4-1 win over Reading at the Northumberland FA.

Massadio Haidara (pictured) returned from injury for the Magpies and fellow first-teamers Jack Colback and Henri Saivet also played.

Gabriel Osho's own goal put the Magpies ahead and, after Josh Barrett levelled for Reading before the break, Osho was sent off for conceding a penalty.

Tom Heardman's spot-kick was saved by George Legg but substitute Luke Charman scored twice and Callum Robets found the net, all in the final 12 minutes, to secure victory.

Newcastle moved up to ninth with victory. Reading stayed third.
