Belief key to Magpies comeback – Gayle

Newcastle United’s belief was the key to Wednesday’s last-gasp 4-3 comeback win against Norwich City, said hat-trick-scoring striker Dwight Gayle.

The Magpies moved up to third place in the Championship, within a point of the Canaries in second, after their sixth league win of the season.

Norwich led 3-2, but two injury-time goals turned the game around.

“We have belief in the team and the quality is there, if we keep going we will get a chance,” Gayle said.

He told BBC Newcastle: “I think after what we’ve seen in the past seven or eight games in the Championship, anything can happen.”

Gayle’s treble took him to seven in nine games in 2016-17, following a £10m move from Crystal Palace in the summer.

The 25-year-old had scored three previous hat-tricks in the EFL, two for Crystal Palace and one for Peterborough.

“That was my fourth hat-trick, they were all sorts of different goals and they were important for us,” he added.

“I enjoyed the second one because it was a great touch and a great move, the last was unbelievable because everyone was together and it was a great moment.”
