The best goals of the game
It was a comfortable win for Bruce's men and that will give them momentum heading into their final friendly on Saturday
There will be a lot of positives that Bruce can take from that performance, especially from Joelinton who was magnificent this evening
After going a goal down Newcastle were in the driver's seat and should have won by more than just the two goals
Full time Newcastle 3-1 Hibernian
The Magpies run out comfortable 3-1 winners at Easter Road after going behind early on

Ki sends a cross to the back post which Fernandez meets bt Hibs clear the Argentines header before it creeps over the line


Newcastle with a chance late on as Murphy sets Muto on his way who pulls it back for Aarons who can't get a shot away before Murphy sees his own shot deflected


A triple change for Newcastle as Matty Longstaff, Sterry, Fernandez come on for Manquillo, Schar and Shelvey 


Another smart save from Darlow as Shaw unleashes one from 25-yards out but he manages to tip the shot over

Straight after the goal sees Clark replace Dummett
71' GOAL

Captain Lascelles gets in on the act as he heads home unmarked from six-yards out via an Aarons cross


A double substitution for the Magpies as Joelinton and Almiron are replaced by Muto and Murphy


Murray sends a cross into the box for Hibs but Darlow manages to get a touch on the cross which diverts it away from danger


Ki is coming on to replace goalscorer Longstaff 

The striker probably should have taken the shot on himself but was unselfish and tried to set his teammate up, but should be more selfish in the Premier League 

A huge chance for Joelinton to get his second of the game as he is clean through on goal but decides to square it to Hayden which the keeper reads and intercepts


Schar attempts to pick out Hayden who has got behind the Hibs defence but he can't quite bring down the ball in the area and the 'keeper collects 


Nothing happening of note so far with both sides just happy to keep the ball whenever they have it and not putting too much intensity into the match now

We are back underway in Edinburgh for the second half with neither manager making any changes 
Joelinton seems to be able to fill the gap left by Rondon if he plays like he did in that first half he was strong, physical and held the ball up very well bringing others into the game
Positives for Bruce are that Longstaff seems back to full fitness like last season and is a threat going forward in a three-man midfield and Joelinton has already got a good relationship with his teammates 
Almiron is still yet to get his first goal for the club and could've had two tonight if he was more clinical in front of goal
The new record signing had a great first half he was very lively and could have had 2 assists to his name if it wasn't for some smart saves from the Hibs 'keeper
Half time at Easter Road and Newcastle lead 2-1 thanks to goals from Joelinton and Sean Longstaff

Joelinton gets passed two defenders very well in the box but he is upheld before getting his shot away but the referee says no penalty

A hectic last 10 minutes should see the Magpies leading by more than one goal as they have peppered the Hibs goal a lot which will please Bruce

Another chance for Newcastle straight after scoring as Joelinton tries to tee up Almiron but his effort as it was heading into the back of the net

It was a smart finish from 20-yards out right into the bottom corner leaving Marciano no chance
Joelinton tried his luck but his shot was blocked before Longstaff hammered home which shows how dangerous he can be in the oppositions box
32' GOAL
Newcastle take the lead through Longstaff as he smashed one home from the edge of the area

Joelinton is causing the Hibs defenders all sorts of trouble as he flicks on for Lascelles who can't connect with his shot from just six-yards out 


Almiron sprints through the Hibs defence but is denied by a great Marcano save to keep his side level in the game


Longstaff's low cross was almost turned into the Hibs net by one of their own players as Hanlon tried to clear and was rescued by a smart saved from Marcano


Newell fires a shot from 20-yards out but it takes a big deflection off Longstaff and it drops just over the bar before Darlow claimed the resulting corner 

18' GOAL

Joelinton gets his first goal for the club in his first start as he swept home Manquillo's low cross into the box.


Aarons picks out Almiron at the back post who was six-yards out but it just skimmed off his head and he really should have scored


Injury for Newcastle as Matt Ritchie is heading off with what looks like a groin strain as Rolando Aarons replaces him

10' GOAL

Hibs take an early lead through Mallan who picked up the loose ball on the edge of the box and smashed home


A great cross-field pass by Shelvey is met by an excellent touch of Manquillo who tries to find Joelinton but it was cleared by Hibs


An early corner for Hibs was a poor one that was easily cleared by Lascelles
