Newcastle United have drawn 2-2 away at Bournemouth.

The Magpies were up 2-0 going into the final 10 minutes, after two first half goals by Dwight Gayle, the striker's first since December.

In the second half, things took a dramatic turn in favour of the home side.

Moments after Jonjo Shelvey missed a chance at a third goal for Newcastle, substitute Adam Smith fired in a shot off the underside of the crossbar to make it 1-2.

Then in the 89th minute, Dan Gosling clawed back a second goal for The Cherries, making it a 2-all draw at the final whistle.

A much needed win for Newcastle United would have seen them leapfrog Bournemouth into 10th place in the league table.

But bringing home, just the one point, means Rafa's side stay in the bottom half of the Premier League.
