Newcastle and Swansea draw 0-0 in Premier League
Newcastle and Swansea battled to a rugged 0-0 draw at St. James’
Park in the Premier League Saturday.
Newcastle striker Demba Ba came closest to breaking the deadlock
late in the first half but the Senegal international’s acrobatic
effort hit the post.
The home side’s dominance repeatedly tested Swansea goalkeeper
Michel Vorm as Newcastle’s Fabricio Coloccini and Shola Ameobi also
came close but failed to find the breakthrough, leaving the Magpies
winless in five games.
Before the game, Newcastle fans paid tribute to former player
Gary Speed, who died last month.
