Ten-man Newcastle United earned their first point of the season

Ten-man Newcastle United earned their first point of the season following a hard-fought goalless draw with Aston Villa.

Neither side managed to create many clear-cut chances with a draw probably the correct result from 90 minutes of dogged football. Mike Williamson's late red card failed to swing the match as Newcastle held on at the end.

After fluctuating fortunes on the first weekend, both sides we're looking to make the most of a winnable fixture on Saturday lunchtime.

Neither Paul Lambert nor Alan Pardew made any changes to the starting xis from the Premier Leagues opening fixtures meaning that new signings Carlos Sanchez, Joe Cole and Siem De Jong all had to start on the bench.

Little sidetrack now... I am intending to re design the website. Considering colour pallette quite a bit and needed suggestions. What do all of you think of Yes, no? Leave a comment. My apologies! I am a scatterbrain, I will get back to it now.

It was the visitors who we're the quickest out of the blocks, but had little to show for their early dominance of possession as ex-Newcastle winger Charles NZogbias header back across goal onto the roof of the net for Villa was as close as either side came in the opening ten minutes.

In truth the first half progressed with very few major incidents. The four defensive midfielders on show; Ashley Westwood, Fabian Delph, Vurnon Anita and Jack Colback making it difficult for any attacker to find themselves in space in front of goal.

Villas best chance of the opening period came again through NZogbia after 18 minutes as his free-kick whipped just past Tim Kruls far post with the keeper beaten.

Newcastle, meanwhile, could rue a couple of miss kicks with Yoan Gouffrans air shot from a corner and Remy Cabellas dragged shot from eight yards out highlighting a frustrating first half for the visitors.

The best move of this period saw Cabella find striker Emmanuel Riviere running into space on the left-hand edge of the box, but his first-time strike was easily saved by Brad Guzan, low to his left-hand side as the first half passed without either keeper being seriously tested.

Newcastle did finally manage to work Guzan early in the second half as Colbacks deep free-kick was headed back across goal by Mike Williamson for Daryl Jaanmaat but the right-backs header was high and allowed the keeper to tip over.

Soon afterwards it was the Dutchman again who almost provided the breakthrough as his fierce left footed drive flew just wide of the far post to briefly excite the travelling fans.

With both sides still defending stoutly mid-way through the second half it was the managers turns to try and change the flow, Lambert opting for Sanchez and Darren Bent and Pardew plumping for De Jong and Ayoze Perez in desperate search of an opening goal at Villa Park.

It was Pardews combination who almost paid off with Perez touching the ball on for De Jong in the box but his thunderous strike was well blocked by Guzan to keep the scores level.

The last action of the match saw centre-back Mike Williamson sent-off for two bookable offences, both picked up in the last ten minutes, but despite thebriefdisadvantage, Newcastle held on to earn their first point of the season.
