Amanda Staveley spotted as 22,307 supporters watch Newcastle United Women win at St James' Park - photos

11 brilliant photos from Newcastle United Women's late 2-1 win over Portsmouth in front of 22,307 fans at St James' Park.

Newcastle United continued their 100% record at St James' Park by beating Portsmouth 2-1 to advance into the final of the FA Women's National League Cup.

It's the fifth time Becky Langley's side have played at St James' Park but this was their closest encounter to date as they hosted the National League South league leaders.

After a goalless first half, Newcastle took the lead shortly after the restart when Charlotte Potts headed home, however the lead didn't last long when Emma Jones slotted the ball past Grace Donnelly.

But the Lady Magpies found another gear and scored a dramatic late equaliser when Georgia Gibson directed Katie Barker's cross home. The final will take place at Luton Town's Kenilworth Road.
