Newcastle United co-owner Jamie Reuben hailed the St James’ Park atmosphere after Eddie Howe’s side returned to winning ways versus Brentford.

The Magpies headed into the Premier League fixture on the back of three straights against Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton and Hove Albion but marked their return from the two-week international break with three points.

England man Callum Wilson - starting for the first time this season in place of Alexander Isak - converted from the penalty spot midway through the second half as United’s backline held out closing stages.

The full-time whistle was greeted with a sigh of relief from the home crowd, and perhaps those in the directors’ box too. Watching on were co-owners Mehrdad Ghodoussi and Reuben, with the latter posting his short verdict on social media.

“Great to be back at SJP for a deserved win - atmosphere incredible again @NUFC,” posted Reuben on X. “Onto Milan @ghodoussi”.

Speaking about the 1-0 win, Howe added: “I think there was a lot of relief in our emotions at the end. It wasn’t a fantastic performance from us but it was a determined one, a gritty one. It was one that wanted to show our response from the Brighton performance.

“I think we’ve seen that, a clean sheet, a massive three points, and now we can move forward.

“When you’re manager of this football club you can’t lose games on a consistent basis, it can’t become a habit. We are determined to bounce back from the three defeats and that’s the Premier League, there’s no easy fixtures.”

Next up for Newcastle is the Champions League opener with AC Milan at the San Siro.
